Went to see “Baby Done” at the fabulous Lighthouse Cuba Cinema last night:
One of the most remarkable things about Baby Done, other than Rose Matafeo’s glorious performance, is that Zoe’s edges aren’t sanded down at all. She’s unashamedly ambitious and stubborn; she suffers no bullshit. She’s the kind of character you can imagine making producers nervous, the kind of person you’d either warm to at a party or walk away from immediately.
She’s totally someone I’d warm to - and the movie is amazing.
