Weddings and Babies

Directed by Morris Engel
United States, 1958
  • English
  • French


Viveca Lindfors stars as Bea, a Swedish-born woman who yearns to begin a family with her photographer boyfriend Al. But the two things to which Al has devoted his career (weddings and babies) are the very things he cannot make room for in his life.

Our take

With Weddings and Babies, Morris Engel continued his investigation into the politics of relationships in addition to further developing the refreshing new aesthetics of his independent cinema. The result? A marvelous observational vision of romantic struggle, led by two unforgettable performances.
