Baby done (15)

Baby Done is an amusing portrait of modern parenthood distinguished by Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning stand-up Rose Matafeo’s heartfelt central performance as a dismissive mother-to-be, who intends to spend her final weeks before delivery doing bungee jumps and clambering up trees.

Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis is a likable comic foil as the voice of reason in the central relationship.

Meanwhile, Nic Sampson offers colourful support as a preggophile, who lavishes the heroine with compliments because he considers her “a beautiful single woman with a bonus in the belly”.

Director Curtis Vowell delivers Sophie Henderson’s messy script with genuine warmth and a couple of memorable set-pieces, including the most inappropriate way to celebrate a new arrival in the delivery room.

Rating: Three stars
