A 50s greaser gang change Andrea Riseborough’s life in the Please Baby Please trailer

Take a whole heap of John Waters, mix in some Kenneth Anger, throw in a dash of David Lynch and a smidge of West Side Story and you get Please Baby Please.

Suze (Andrea Riseborough) and Arthur (Harry Melling) live an outwardly traditional lifestyle as the Lower East Side’s most bohemian Eisenhower-era couple. The pair’s cage is rattled when they encounter a gang of sadistic, leather-clad greasers known as The Young Gents. Suze and Arthur’s initial thrust of fear evolves into confusion of thrill and lust. This sudden exposure to flamboyant masculinity unlocks the realization that Suze is an aspiring leather daddy who mistook herself for a housewife. Meanwhile, the perpetually sensitive Arthur’s obsessive gender trouble goes sideways when Young Gent Teddy (Karl Glusman) sparks a queer desire. PLEASE BABY PLEASE presents a full spectrum of underground fetishism and seductive musical asides featuring alluring cameos by Demi Moore and Cole Escola. Visionary filmmaker Amanda Kramer pegs the hetero hellscape of the 1950s in a witty, syncopated riff that plays like a high camp emission from your wildest dreams – bathed in silk, sweat, and bisexual lighting.

Directed by Amanda Kramer, the film stars Andrea Riseborough, Harry Melling, Karl Glusman, Demi Moore, Cole Escola and Ryan Simpkins.

Please Baby Please hits US cinemas on 28th October 2022.
