The Kids Are Not Alright: Rosemary's Baby (1968)
Directed by Roman Polanski. Starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon.
Guy and Rosemary Woodhouse are having a blessed event, except their neighbors seem to be a tad too involved in the pregnancy. When Rosemary’s pangs of paranoia become too much to bear, she starts looking for answers…and finds them. 136 minutes. Unrated.
When children go bad, the usual suspects in their downfall are rounded up: parents, genetics, family environment, television, video games, the education system. But sometimes the reason a kid goes rogue just can’t be pinned down. Is Junior wreaking havoc because of alien intervention or some evil force – or is it really too many sugary snacks?
