Two twisted sisters live in their own self-made hell. BABY JANE? takes its cue from the original cult classic starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford…but continually takes the audience down unexpected twists and turns.
The film begins with Baby Jane as a famous brat child star, then transitions to her failed attempt at becoming a big fat movie star like her sister Blanche until a tragic gate accident makes Blanche’s spine…kinda snap. Baby Jane gives up her career to take care of her disabled sister, waiting on her hand and foot, every gawd damn day!
Until one day, Baby Jane has had enough! We watch her slowly unravel, taking it out on her poor disabled sister Blanche, the housekeeper Elvira (Blanche’s secret “special friend”), the nosey neighbor Mrs. Bates and her ding dong daughter, Gloria. All through this, Blanche plays the victim role when in actuality she is just a manipulating bitch!
“Quite faithful, it tweaks the original material just enough, with frequently very funny results.”
-Dennis Harvey, Variety
“Baby Jane? is one of the most satisfying movie tributes to grace the screen”
-Kevin M. Thomas, Examiner
“…visually delightful…a smart, sassy and fun movie…”
