CITY BABY is a Portland-centric coming-of-age story about a group of meandering 20-somethings trying to find meaning in the new world of adulthood. CITY BABY features live performances by Glass Candy and STRFKR/Starfucker, a soundtrack of local Portland bands including Chromatics and The Helio Sequence, as well as a cameo from musical frontman Stephen Malkmus (Pavement). An updated REALITY BITES for the Me Generation, CITY BABY ruminates on themes of love, class, and contemporary youth subculture. CITY BABY follows Cloey, played by Benesh (PORTLANDIA, RID OF ME), who is reluctantly plucked from her party-girl lifestyle and forced to deal with her real life. Pressure from her dad (Daniel Baldwin – TREES LOUNGE) to find a job, her best friend Paige’s (Jillian Leigh – A BIG FAT LOVE STORY) new relationship driving a wedge between them, and a balancing act of two romances with an aging rocker (Andrew Harris – SWEAT, LEVERAGE) and a yuppie ad agency guy (Richard Keith – GREYS ANATOMY, VERONICA MARS) all weigh heavy on her young heart.
CITY BABY held its US premiere at the 2013 Cinequest Film Festival in March and is the directorial feature film debut for Morgan.
