Like a delightful child, NASTY BABY reels you in with free-spirited laughter and a calm appearance. It isn’t until the climax that you realize this aptly named film has suddenly turned on you. From Chilean director Sebastián Silva comes this dark dramedy that not only stunned audiences at this year’s Sundance Film Festival but also took home the distinguished Teddy Award for Best Feature at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival and the Best US Dramatic Feature award at Outfest 2015.
Freddy (played by Silva himself) and Mo (“Tunde” Adebimpe), a genial gay couple in Brooklyn, have been attempting to get pregnant with their best friend Polly (Kristen Wiig) who eagerly wants to have a baby. Each member of this “modern family” approaches the world in a different manner: Freddy has a silly sensibility that leads him to create a project in which he acts like a baby, Mo provides balance in the relationship and fills their apartment with plants, and lighthearted Polly becomes earnest when it matters most. Problems arise when a troubled neighbor known only as “The Bishop” puts them all at wit’s end and events soon spiral out of control
NASTY BABY pleases with an embracing handheld style and down-to-earth performances by the whole cast, especially Wiig. It also challenges with engaging paradoxes, juxtaposing infantile behavior with adult situations that send the viewer into an awkward yet illuminating state of observation.
