Nasty Baby

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

One of 2013’s greatest cinematic slights was the fact that Sebastian Silva’s Magic Magic didn’t get a proper theatrical release, even though it played at Sundance and Cannes’ Director’s Fortnight sidebar (Silva’s other Michael Cera starring 2013 title, Crystal Fairy thankfully saw an awesome performance from Gaby Hoffman honored with an Indie Spirit Award nomination). A forerunner of the Chilean New Wave, Silva seems determined to stay in the English language realm, and we’re quite excited for this latest drama which has gathered an exciting and eclectic cast.

Gist: A gay couple are trying to have a baby with the help of their best friend.

Release Date: A prime candidate for a high profile entry in Venice/Toronto.
