Kieran Culkin, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, and more familiar faces star in this caustically funny, black-and-white comedy, set in an absurdist world where a corporation offers genetically modified babies that don’t age. An outlandish collaboration between odd-duck filmmakers Bob Byington (SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME, Cuc ’12) and Onur Tukel (THE MISOGYNISTS, Cuc ’17), theirs is a unique comic meditation on growing up.
