100 Word Review – Obvious Child (2014)

Named after the Paul Simon song, this is a wonderful feature about the trials and tribulations of being a twenty something woman surviving in the modern world.

Donna (Jenny Slate) is a stand-up comedian coping with a nasty break up when she meets Max (Jack Lacy) and has a one night stand that changes her life and forces her to confront adult life.

Written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, based on her short of the same name, there is a distinct voice running throughout that, while it may not be to everyone’s taste, I cannot wait to hear more from.
