In the department of indie and genre films not to be missed this year, we have found a great candidate. In Baby Ruby, the first film written and directed by playwright Bess Wohl, Kit Harington and our Frenchy Noémie Merlant play a couple who will experience a descent into hell at the birth of their first child. accomplished and popular in their respective professions, and are even major social media influencers. But the arrival of Ruby will disturb the daily lives of both parents, and especially that of the mother, prey to a form of maternal paranoia. See also on Konbini We no longer present Kit Harington, the star of Game of Thrones and forever Jon Snow in our hearts, who is trying to extricate himself definitively (albeit…) from Westeros with increasingly different roles; as well as Noémie Merlant, revealed in L’Orpheline plus one arm less by Jacques Richard then devoted alongside Adèle Haenel in Portrait of the young girl on fire by Céline Sciamma, who we have seen several times l year (with Louis Garrel in L’Innocent, and who made a feature film for the first time, Mi iubita, mon amour). This year, she will also star in A Difficult Year, the new film by Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, and Tár opposite Cate Blanchett, who just received a Golden Globe award for her performance.Presented in preview at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) last year, Baby Ruby will be released in American cinemas and directly on VOD from February 3rd. On the other hand, the film does not yet have a distributor in France, so we are crossing our fingers that a streaming platform will be interested in it quickly.
