"Obvious Child" was one of the coolest movies at SXSW this year. Moviefone's Drew Taylor called it "one of the more unexpectedly moving experiences of the entire festival," and that's for real.
Jenny Slate stars as Donna, a comedian in Brooklyn with a slacker day job and a dismal love life. After a seriously brutal dumping, she hooks up with a straight-laced dude named Max (Jake Lacy) and has a one-night stand that leads to a very unromantic Valentine's Day trip to the women's clinic. Gaby Hoffman co-stars as her roommate Nellie, and Richard Kind and Polly Draper play Donna's divorced parents.
If you love Jenny Slate from her time on "Saturday Night Live," or the co-writer and voice of "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On," or her hilarious appearances on "Parks and Rec" or "Kroll Show" ("pubLIZity"!), you'll be wonderfully surprised by her performance... and then love her even more! Yay!
This is director and co-writer Gillian Robespierre's first feature film -- but definitely not her last! She's already been hired to direct a lady-centric "divorce comedy" set in NYC. Hurry up!
