Wednesday, October 8  8:00 PM at Nyack Center
Directed by Gillian Robespierre
With Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann
USA, 2014, 84 minutes, rated R for language and sexual content

Meet the Filmmakers: Join writer/director Gillian Robespierre and writer/producer Elisabeth Holm in a discussion moderated by Susanna Styron.

Donna is a 28-year-old struggling stand-up comic from Brooklyn, complete with the requisite potty mouth. After what she assumes is a one-night stand, with a guy who is far from a hipster, she finds herself facing an unwanted pregnancy. The decision she makes, along with its attendant complications, is presented in a manner that's non-judgmental, funny, serious and, above all, honest.

"Donna may be as unmoored in broke bohemia as Lena Dunham's girls, but unlike them, her gaze goes beyond her navel; you can picture and want to know the grown woman she'll become. . . . A-"   Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

"Nobody's going to confuse Gillian Robespierre's likable rom-com Obvious Childwith the best of Howard Hawks and Ernst Lubitsch, but for many women who see itand quite a few men too it will instantly become a landmark moment in cultural history. . . .Obvious Child is often scabrously funny in a post-Lena Dunham, post-Woody Allen New York comedy vein, and finds a star performance in the thoroughly unlikely personage of Jenny Slate, a stand-up comic and actress best known for her TV roles on Parks and Recreation and House of Lies."  Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

"It's a warm, sympathetic, very sloppy and often very funny little movie about a young woman who, among several other things, is not remotely ready to be a parent, and knows it."  Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"There are as many awkward, discomfiting sequences in Obvious Child as there are interludes of genuine fun and romance. The result is a movie that feels risky and forgiving and, despite the traditional rom-com contours, refreshingly new."  Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
