In New York, artist Freddy is trying to have a baby with his boyfriend, Mo, with the help of their best friend, Polly. But Mo is hesitant, especially when Freddy’s sperm fails and donor duties shift to him. Meanwhile, the trio are subjected to increasingly severe harassment by an elderly neighbor.
Sebastián Silva assembles a winning ensemble cast for this, his fifth feature: a film about many things at once—pregnancy, gentrification—but most of all something more complicated, frequently, and fascinatingly elusive. A surprising film that builds and builds to a truly killer, knockout ending.
