A breakout hit from this years SXSW Film Festival, Bob Byington spins a wickedly funny film that doubles as a biting commentary on modern life. Owing to a genetic mix-up involving stem cell research, the recently founded Infinity Baby, run by the garrulous Neo (Nick Offerman), is able to offer a service for aspiring parents who never want to leave the baby bubble infants that do not age. Ben (Kieran Culkin), a serial monogamist who says he wants to find the right woman but is always looking for the next one, and his half-competent pals Larry (Kevin Corrigan) and Malcolm (Martin Starr), are hired to market the service to those keen to nurture. While Ben swipes through his smart phone looking for the next partner, Malcolm and Larry consider taking on the maintenance of one of the timeless toddlers. Culkin is spectacular as the aloof millennial unwilling to engage with the world, and a terrific supporting performance from an cast including Offerman, Megan Mullaly, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Starr and Corrigan make this an unforgettably enjoyable ride. USA, 87m.
Expected to Attend: Screenwriter Onur Tukel, Actress Trieste Dunn.
