Summary, etc.:
An award-winning festival favorite, NASTY BABY centers on Freddy (Sebasti©Łn Silva), a Brooklyn-based artist who, with his boyfriend, Mo (Tunde Adebimpe), and their best friend, Polly (Kristen Wiig), is trying to have a baby. As this trio deals with the complications of conception and creating the "new normal" family, their bliss is clouded by a series of confrontations with an annoying neighbor who just might be a madman.. Winner of Best Feature Film at the Berlin International Film Festival. Nominated for the Best of Next! Award at the Sundance Film Festival.. "[A] devilishly clever plot...[NASTY BABY is] a carefully constructed narrative machine, one that dispenses a brilliantly nasty series of surprises. Mr. Silvás accomplishment is not just in pulling off a jarring plot twist, but in handling a change of tone that turns the movie ́ and the audiencés assumptions about it ́ upside down." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
