Please Baby Please (2022)
Riseborough gives one of the year’s best performances in Amanda Kramer’s smirkingly flamboyant, gender-blurring knockout. Stylish down to the last detail, Please Baby Please inhabits a neon-drenched, leather-clad 1950s New York replete with lusty greaser cruising, gangland showdowns, and lovelorn musical numbers, equal parts Marlon Brando, Kenneth Anger, and John Waters. “Delightfully off-kilter… an ebullient, campy thrill ride” (Variety).
