BABIES @ THE GRAND

Fellow Film Club Members and Movie Buffs:

Our theatrical pick, BABIES: a documentary, for May 2010, opens this Friday, May 7th at the Grand Theater.

Rating: PG

Length: 90 minutes

Year: 2010

Everybody loves… BABIES. This visually stunning new movie simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from first breath to first steps. From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, BABIES joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

An exercise in observational cinema tracking four infants across the globe, Babies is refreshing in its methods, impressive in its scope and remarkable in its immediacy. — Lael Lowenstein, Variety

Hardwired as we are to respond to infants, it’s difficult not to be drawn in to the innate cuteness. The filmmaker’s emotional connection to his subjects is clear, and even when “Babies” loses steam, it casts the human story in a fresh light. — Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

If you were enraptured by MARCH OF THE PENGUINS, wait until you see BABIES. — Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today

BABIES aka BEBE(S) (2010) Directed by Thomas Balmes
