While Kristen Wiig will be back in the comedy mode we know her for in “Ghostbusters” next summer, she’s spending 2015 going down a variety of different cinematic avenues. She’s currently in theaters now with “The Diary Of A Teenage Girl,” she appeared with Will Ferrell in the Lifetime effort “A Deadly Adoption,” went to TV for “The Spoils Before Dying” and “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp,” and this fall she puts on her sci-fi boots for Ridley Scott‘s “The Martian.” And yet you might’ve forgotten about “Nasty Baby.” Premiering at Sundance earlier this year, there hasn’t been much talk about it since, but the picture is gearing up to open overseas and first trailer has landed.
Co-starring Tunde Adebimpe and Alia Shawkat, the latest from Sebastian Silva (who also appears in the film) follows a gay Brooklyn couple, Freddy and his boyfriend Mo, who decide to have a baby with their best friend, Polly. As you might imagine it’s a complex arrangement, but things take a darker turn when an aggressive man from the neighborhood gets involved. Indeed, as you’ll see from the trailer, “Nasty Baby” is comedic, dramatic, and also quite dark, a mix that didn’t quite work for our own Katie Walsh, though she still wrote in her review that “if the [dark] turn takes the film off the rails, it’s a very well-made going off the rails.”
“Nasty Baby” opens on October 23rd in theaters and then on VOD on October 30th.
