MUBI x LAB111: Please Baby Please
After witnessing a murder on Manhattan’s gritty streets, a bohemian couple become the dangerous obsession of a greaser gang. Fear transforms into thrill and lust as the wife becomes infatuated with the gang’s rough exterior, and the husband singles out a gang member as an object of affection.
Blood, sweat and camp. The exuberant Please Baby Please by Amanda Kramer explores a couple’s sexual awakening against the backdrop of 1950s New York through stylized technicolor images reminiscent of West Side Story, John Waters and Fassbinder.
Featuring Oscar nominated Andrea Riseborough, Harry Melling, Karl Glusman and Demi Moore in the role of the alluring upstairs neighbor.
