Synopsis: Baby is a queer, coming-of-age love story that confronts themes of LGBTQ identity and toxic masculinity by introducing us to the world of Ali, a Dominican-American teenager from the Bronx. Shot stylistically as narrative cinema verite, Baby is as much an ode to New York and to the rawness of teen-hood as it is a portrait of the awkward terrain of coming into one’s own body, queerness, and desire.
