Baby Pictures is our regular Friday morning film slot exclusively for carers with little ones aged twelve months and under. This week Dionne Edwards’ spirited debut investigates Black masculinity and family structures.

Travis (Natey Jones) has just been released from prison and it quickly becomes apparent that everything's changed while he's been gone. While girlfriend Candice (Alexandra Burke) is on the up and auditioning to star in a musical, daughter Kenisha (Temilola Olatunbosun) is struggling in school and her relationship with her mum is tense.

So when Travis buys Candice her dream dress for an audition, rather than smoothing over the family's problems, it ends up creating even more... As secrets and desires left unsaid threaten to spill out, Travis is forced to re-examine who he is and how he wants to be perceived in the world.

In her skillfully directed first feature, Dionne Edwards crafts an uplifting family drama that will instantly fall into the canon of iconic London films. Featuring breakthrough performances from Natey Jones (National Theatre Live: Small Island), newcomer Temilola Olatunbosun, and the chart-topping singer and West End actor Alexandra Burke in her first film role.

Baby Pictures 

Baby Pictures is open to carers and little ones of twelve months and under. As everyone in the cinema is a parent or carer, there’s no need to worry if it gets a little noisy. Everyone understands. Customers not accompanying a baby will be turned away.

The lights are turned up a little bit and the sound is a little softer to create a peaceful environment for you and the baby. It’s just for carers (Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whoever it is it looking after the tot) and babies. Up to two adults can come with a baby. Please note: we cannot allow babies over the age of 12 months to come to Baby Pictures.
