About the Movie

For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her hysterical and relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna winds up unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand, she is forced to face the uncomfortable realities of independent womanhood for the first time. Donna’s drunken hookup – and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment – turns out to be the beginning of a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Anchored by a star-making performance from Jenny Slate, OBVIOUS CHILD is a true Sundance gem: a heartfelt discovery packed tight with raw, energetic comedy and moments of poignant honesty and vulnerability. Writer/Director Gillian Robespierre handles the topic of Donna's unwanted pregnancy with a refreshing matter-of-factness rarely seen onscreen. And with Donna, Slate and Robespierre have crafted a character for the ages – a female that audiences will recognize, cheer for, and love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Despite a few too-cute moments, the movie is both smarter and more sympathetic than that glib shorthand. – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 30, 2014

Fresh: Robespierre's direction of the many fine actors she assembled is assured, her sense of pacing nicely loose-limbed. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jan 5, 2015

Fresh: A cross between a Woody Allen farce and a one-woman show by Sarah Silverman. – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 20, 2014

Fresh: Slate is adept with biting remarks and self-deprecation, and she balances Donna somewhere between flightiness and innocence. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jun 27, 2014

Loved it!

Just got back from watching this movie and it was so great! Probably one of the best movies I've seen in a really long time. It was hilariously pretty real and very endearing. Acting was great and it just felt like watching someone's life for a couple of hours. Can't wait to buy it when it comes out. Definitely worth the watch!

Jenny Slate Is Amazing...

Great movie with an incredible performance by Jenny Slate. It is both funny and very touching. Wish there were more movies out there like this.

Saw it day of

A friend just took me to see it not telling me what it was about and at first it was a bit much from the first scene but they you fall in love with the whole thing. I hope her comedy is just as good
