Bringing Up Bobby

Mallory finds out she is pregnant at her boyfriend’s house party the night before their graduation. When she tells her boyfriend Sully, he is less than ecstatic. Their fears are pushed to the back burner when the couple is forced to take care of Sully’s inebriated best friend Bob. Just when they think they’ve put him down for bed, he escapes his room into the world unknown. Bringing Up Bobby is a coming of age tale on the cusp of adulthood. Sully must find Bob, get him to graduation on time, mend his relationship with Mallory, and decide if he’s ready for fatherhood in the most stressful night of his life.

Director Statement

I wanted challenge the cultural norm that unplanned pregnancies are entirely on the shoulders of the mother while fathers are able to just walk away. I don’t believe that women will achieve true equality until childcare is a shared responsibility and men take up their full responsibility as fathers.
