The only downfall of this amazing first trailer for Jenny Slate's upcoming Obvious Child is the fact that it says we all have to wait until June 6 to see the actual movie. Everything else—the plot, even the cinematography—looks amazing, and you'd probably be hard-pressed to find someone more charming than Slate appears to be in this role.
A description of the plot via distributor A24, for those whose lives havent been blessed with mention of this film before:
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. Never failing to find the comedy and humanity in each awkward situation she encounters, Donna finds out along the way what it means to be as brave in life as she is on stage.
The film was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, and, in addition to Slate, also stars Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann, David Cross, Gabe Liedman, and Richard Kind. Check out the trailer above—and be sure to catch Obvious Child when it hits theaters on June 6.
