New Release: Ricky DVD

Ricky movie scene

A little baby leads the way in Ricky.

Another choice French film arrived on DVD with the release of Ricky, written and directed by the great François Ozon (Hideaway). IFC issued the DVD on April 12, 2011, for the list price of $24.95.

A blend of magical realism, fantasy and family drama, the movie tells the story of French factory worker Katie (Alexandra Lamy, Modern Love), a struggling single mother with a precocious 7-year-old daughter (Melusine Mayance), who falls in love with her Spanish co-worker Paco (Sergi Lopez, Pan’s Labyrinth).

The two produce something truly extraordinary: Ricky, an angelically beautiful baby who soon develops wing-like bumps on his back that look suspiciously like — well, it’s something that gets the media in an uproar. This miraculous little creature brings the young family challenges and joys no parent could be prepared for … or could ever live without.

A 2009 movie that was well-received by the critics on its limited theatrical release in the U.S., Ricky is presented in French with English subtitles.

No bonus features areon the DVD.
