Film review: ‘Nasty Baby’ ★★★★

Sebastián Silva’s latest feature, Nasty Baby, is a 1970s Woody Allen movie for the hipster generation. The existential, chain-smoking intellectuals of Manhattan are displaced by scooter-riding conceptual artists, who drink out of mason jars, fill gentrified apartments with potted plants and go rock climbing in Brooklyn. A poignant, heartfelt and ultimately troubling moral tale, it revolves around a gay couple – Silva as Freddy and Tunde Adebimpe his partner, Mo – and their closest female friend, Polly (Kristen Wiig).

Nasty Baby is out 8th April – read the full review over at CineVue here.
