"From the production house behind Kiwi box office hits The Breaker Upperers and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Baby Done stars award-winning comedian Rose Matafeo (The Breaker Upperers, Funny Girls) and English actor Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter, Me Before You).
The film follows wannabe-adventurer Zoe (Rose Matafeo) who freaks out when she falls pregnant to her long-term boyfriend Tim (Matthew Lewis). As Tim embraces the prospect of fatherhood, Zoe attempts to rush through her dreams.
Written by Sophie Henderson (Human Traces, Fantail) and directed by her husband Curtis Vowell (Fantail), Baby Done is a semi-autobiographical story inspired by their own reaction to starting a family."
