For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her incredibly relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, but when Donna gets dumped, loses her job, and finds herself pregnant just in time for Valentine's Day, she has to navigate the murky waters of independent adulthood for the first time. As she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy, and a surprising new suitor, Donna begins to discover that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn't facing it all on her own. Anchored by a breakout performance from Jenny Slate, Obvious Child is a winning discovery, packed tight with raw, energetic comedy and moments of poignant human honesty.
Writer/Director Gillian Robespierre and Jenny Slate have crafted a character for the ages - a female audiences will recognize, cheer for, and love. Rated R. 83 minutes. Director: Gillian Robespierre. Starring: Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffman.
