Overview

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 would-be parents who never want to leave the baby bubble: delivering infants who do not age. Fitting, then, that some of his employees likewise seem never to have grown up, including Ben (Kieran Culkin)—a fickle serial monogamist whose sarcastic and demanding mother Hester (Megan Mullally) plays a role in his frequent breakups—and his bumbling pals Larry (Kevin Corrigan) and Malcolm (Martin Starr), who have ulterior motives for taking in one of the timeless tots themselves.

Teaming up with writer Onur Tukel (Richard's Wedding, DFF35; this year's The Misogynists), director Bob Byington (Harmony and Me, DFF32; Somebody Up There Likes Me; 7 Chinese Brothers) shot his latest in black-and-white, a choice that brings the philosophical dilemma at its heart—the frequently dysfunctional dynamics of our relationships with family, friends, love interests and colleagues in a consumerist, corporatized culture—into stark relief. Yet Infinity Baby remains the drollest of comedies, its charms as clear as its edges are sharp.


Director Bob Byington and writer Onur Tukel will be in attendance for the Nov. 5th and 6th screenings.
