Brooklyn artist Freddy (Sebastian Silva) is baby obsessed. His new project centers around newborns, and he and his boyfriend, Mo, have recruited their best friend, Polly (Kristen Wiig), to help them have a baby. On top of dealing with the stress of opening an art installation and the complications of conceiving a child via artificial insemination, the three begin to be harassed by The Bishop, a mentally ill neighborhood man. An escalating series of incidents threaten to derail the comfortable lives these people have built for themselves./p>
Writer/director/actor Silva returns with his fifth premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Shot with a keen eye for the minutiae of Outer Borough life and featuring strong central performances by Wiig and Silva himself, Nasty Baby is a constantly morphing critique of the blithe self-absorption of modern bohemia. It masterfully toys with audience expectations in ways that prove insightful and challenging in equal measure. —C.H.
