baby opening in san francisco

If you're in the Bay Area, and you're looking for something different this weekend at the movies, check out the theatrical premiere of Juwan Chung's indie gangster drama Baby. The movie was a surprise festival hit a little while back, scoring multiple awards and getting a lot of great attention.

The movie is the nihilistic tale of an Asian American teen trapped in the world of East Los Angeles gang life. To be completely honest, I had pretty low expectations going into this movie, and it turned out to be pretty awesome. The movie stars David Huynh, who's fantastic, along with Tzi Ma, Feodor Chin, Ron Yuan and Kenneth Choi.

It's opening this Friday, December 12 for a one-week run at the Lee's 4-Star Theatre in San Francisco (daily showings at 2:00pm and 7:00pm). The director, producer and actors will be present for a Q&A after the 7:00pm show on Saturday night. For more information, go to the Baby website here, the MySpace page, and the Facebook event page.

And if you're not in San Francisco, and can't make the movie, it looks like Baby will out on DVD later this month, so you can catch it from the comfort of your own couch.
