Baby (2001) (12 mins)
A mesmerising depiction of adolescent sexual anxiety, Baby will resonate with anyone who remembers being a sex-crazed teen. In this early example of his bold taste in acting roles, Ben Whishaw plays a moody teen recalling a sexually-charged visit to a swimming pool. A muscled diver, naked encounters in the shower…but is he attracted to the female bathers too?
