A first trailer has arrived for one of the strongest titles out of this year’s Sundance, “Obvious Child,” starring the hilarious Jenny Slate as a hapless young Brooklyn comedian who considers getting an abortion after she has not-so-safe sex with a cute guy from a bar.
Directed by first-time feature filmmaker Gillian Robespierre, the film strikes an admirable balance between sticking to many of the tried-and-true tenets of romantic comedies, while also shaking things up with a subversive edge. Our TOH! review is here.
“Obvious Child,” which was scooped up by A24 out of the Park City fest, hits theaters June 6. It’s a must-see.
