Baby Luv | Chicago Reader

Baby Luv

Dalene Young adapted this 1999 feature from her play about a young painter (Christian Leffler) and his emotionally unstable roommate (Mariam Parris), whose promiscuity has led to the latest in a series of unwanted pregnancies. When he's not fending off her amorous advances, the painter helps the woman locate a couple who will buy her unborn child, but the arrangement leads to complications for everyone involved. With its uneasy mix of comic elements and dark undertones, the film never fully realizes its dramatic potential, though it does offer a good deal of emotional depth, thanks to a good cast (including Young and Christopher Darga) and a remarkable performance by Parris. Robert Martin Carroll directed. 104 min.
