Obvious Child

2014 / 90min / DCP

DIRECTOR: GILLIAN ROBESPIERRE

CAST: JENNY SLATE

The Sundance sensation of 2014, Obvious Child provided a breakout serio-comic lead role to Saturday Night Live’s Jenny Slate, playing a recently dumped, slovenly stand-up comic who finds herself pregnant after a boozy rebound one-night stand with stranger Jake Lacy, with whom she’ll now have to face a difficult decision. Raunchy, romantic, and at all times deeply humane, addressing a hot-button topic with emotional clarity and a refreshing absence of hand-wringing. “Both funny and serious without trying too hard to be either, and by trying above all to be honest.”—The New York Times
