The simple new poster for “Obvious Child” features a slightly dishelved, yet still positively radiant Jenny Slate against a bright pink background. It’s a reminder, ladies, that it is okay to revel in our “feminine tendencies.”
Written and Directed by Gillian Robespierre, “Obvious Child” is a grown woman’s coming-of-age story. Per the synopsis provided by distributor A24:
For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her incredibly 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 gets dumped, loses her job, and finds herself pregnant just in time for Valentine’s Day, she has to navigate the murky waters of independent adulthood for the first time. As she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy, and a surprising new suitor, Donna begins to discover that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn’t facing it all on her own. It’s allowing herself to accept the support and love of others. And be truly vulnerable.
“Obvious Child” is slated for limited release on June 6th, with plans to expand to additional theaters over the course of the month. For more fun photos and digital art, check out the film’s Instagram.
