Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Hey Music Boxers,

We’re pleased to announce that, due to (extremely) high demand, Kristen Wiig will be at the Music Box for TWO more Q&As during opening weekend of her new film Nasty Baby. Ms. Wiig will now be appearing at Q&As following screenings on Friday, Oct 30th at 5pm and Saturday, Oct 31st at 5pm.

Directed by Sebastián Silva, Nasty Baby centers on Freddy and his boyfriend Mo, a Brooklyn couple who are trying to have a baby with the help of their best friend, Polly (Kristen Wiig). The film follows the trio as they navigate the idea of creating life while confronted by growing harassment from a menacing local known as “The Bishop”. As things take a dark turn, their joyous pursuit of parenthood is suddenly clouded.

Nasty Baby

A film by Sebastián Silva starring Kristen Wiig, Alia Shawkat, Sebastian Silva


Kristen Wiig in-person Opening Weekend!

“Nasty Baby brilliantly combines loopy comedy and a mysterious sense of dread surrounding human behavior.”

Nasty Baby, centers around a Brooklyn couple, Freddy (Sebastian Silva) and his boyfriend Mo (Tunde Adebimpe) who are trying to have a baby with the help of their best friend, Polly (Kristen Wiig). Freddy is an artist, and his latest work is all about babies – it’s clear he’s dying to be a father. Polly is a family practitioner who is more interested in having a baby than having a man. Mo is hesitant about the entire idea, especially when Polly isn’t having success with Freddyʼs sperm and the donor responsibility shifts to him. Set almost entirely in the multicultural vibrancy of Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the trio navigates the idea of creating life, when they are confronted by unexpected harassment from particularly aggressive neighborhood man, nicknamed The Bishop (Reg E. Cathey). The Bishop is bothersome in small, yet persistent ways, with a hint of danger. As their clashes become increasingly aggressive, someone is bound to get hurt.
