Dramedy “Don’t Worry Baby” may not be all that paramount, but rather the reason beyond any doubt is: A person may be the natural father of his own dad’s illegitimate youngster with another lady. It’s the Tribeca form of a “Maury” scene, spruced up with Millennial disquietude and high society emotional meltdowns, as told with an excessively straight face and wholesale non mainstream presentation. Debut essayist/executive Julian Branciforte in the end loses control of his precarious pitch, particularly as his non specific vision can’t bolster the story with an unmistakable tone.
The film has a story economy, covering a lot of domain in the initial 15-20 minutes. We meet a maturing picture taker named Robert (John Magaro, “The Big Short”), who is dismissing offers from his removed father, Harry (Christopher McDonald), to work for him.
