‘Baby Ruby’ Exclusive Clip: My Dog Ate My Baby!
In her feature film debut Baby Ruby, writer/director Bess Wohl takes on the horrors of motherhood. While such tales are common in the genre, Wohl decides to examine the horrifying experience of postpartum depression and the harrowing truths of having a baby. Our exclusive clip from the film gives you a taste of those terrors.
In Baby Ruby,
Jo is a successful lifestyle entrepreneur who is happily pregnant, awaiting the arrival of her first child. But soon after Jo welcomes baby Ruby home, something starts to feel off– even though she’s assured it’s all perfectly normal. Is something wrong with her? Is something wrong with Ruby? And why are the seemingly perfect neighborhood moms so desperate to befriend her? As Jo fights to protect herself and her baby, she is plunged into a waking fever dream where everyone is a threat and nothing is what it seems. At last, she must confront the truth of her own darkness and contend with the ultimate human sacrifice: The one mothers make for their children.
In this exclusive clip, Jo (Noémie Merlant) awakens from a nap with her husband (Kit Harrington) to find her baby missing. Then, she makes a horrifying discovery.
Baby Ruby comes to theaters and VOD on February 3, 2023.
