Cubby (New York Centerpiece)

Friday October 25 @ 6:30 pm


New York Premiere

Dir. Mark Blane and Ben Mankoff, USA, 2019, 83 mins

With a bold voice reminiscent of heyday ’90s independent cinema, CUBBY gives a whole new meaning to “adventures in babysitting.” Written and co-directed by breakout star Mark Blane and shot in crisp 16mm, this quirky dark comedy tells the semi-autobiographical story of an anxious midwestern twentysomething who moves to New York City in hopes of becoming an artist. We follow Mark as he navigates his new life in this overwhelming city amid chemically imbalanced flights of fancy, all while fostering a friendship with Milo, a precocious 6-year-old he begins to babysit in brownstone-filled Brooklyn.

This simultaneously off-the-wall and oddly charming debut features a superhero named Leather-Man (Christian Patrick, INTERIOR, LEATHER BAR), a bizarre closet-dwelling roommate, psychedelics, and a heartwarming performance by Emmy Award nominee Patricia Richardson (HOME IMPROVEMENT). CUBBY is sure to make you reconnect with your inner child and remind you why you fell in love with this crazy city.
