Q RATING - VIOLENCE
Directed By: Sebastián Silva
Screenwriter: 
Hipsters beware: NASTY BABY plays nice until a disturbing twist flips the film - and with it the entire quirky-cute indie canon - on its head. A certifiable shocker at the Sundance Film Festival, Sebastián Silva's biting and provocative black comedy has already inspired both walkouts and accolades, including the prestigious Teddy Award for Best Feature at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival. An attractive gay Brooklyn couple, Freddy (Silva) and Mo (Tunde Adebimpe, TV on the Radio, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED), ask their best friend Polly (Kristen Wiig) to become their surrogate. As the three hipsters contemplate becoming one big progressive family, and as Freddy and his assistant Wendy (Alia Shawkat, "Arrested Development") create what they're convinced is a brilliant art show, signs of danger and instability, primarily from a neighbor named The Bishop, intrude upon the film's squeaky-clean surface. Director Silva (MAGIC MAGIC, CRYSTAL FAIRY) cleverly shows audiences what they want to see, only to rip the rug out from under and expose - with pitch-black humor - the hypocrisy of Brooklyn's latte-sipping elite.
