Bad Boy Bubby is just that: a bad boy. So bad, in fact, that his mother has kept him locked in their house for his entire thirty years, convincing him that the air outside is poisonous. After a visit from his estranged father, circumstances force Bubby into the waiting world, a place which is just as unusual to him as he is to the world.
L.A. Weekly called it “disturbing and compelling”, and it was awarded The Grand Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival. Despite a limited release in America, it would shock and delight audiences to become one of the most daring and controversial cult films of the past decade. Nicholas Hope in what Variety hails as “an astonishing performance” – stars as Bubby, a demented man-child kept locked his entire life in a squalid apartment by his depraved mother. But when Bubby – who can only communicate by mimicking what others say and do – escapes into the outside, he soon discovers the wonders of sex, crime, rock & roll and pizza. Will this ‘mad bastard’ be destroyed by the realities of our cruel world, or does a higher calling ultimately await him in the most unlikely place of all?
