Model Mother (Movie Thoughts: Baby Done)

Sometimes a film just rubs you the wrong way. In Curtis Vowell’s ‘Baby Done,’ Rose Matafeo plays Zoe, a woman who, in the beginning of the film, finds out she is pregnant. She is of age, and she has a loving partner, but she loves life, and is in denial about the coming baby. So she sabotages everything in her pregnancy, but…wants to have the baby anyway? I know Zoe is supposed to be a fun-loving whimsical character, but she just annoyed the hell out of me throughout the film. The character is just so irresponsible and I couldn’t get past that. My appreciation of the film suffered, and I ended up disliking the movie. I know this film is beloved by a lot of people. but…count me out!
