  • Obvious Child

    An interview with director Gillian Robespierre and actress Jenny Slate heard on NPR this morning. It was a great interview. Really looking forward to seeing this movie with a well-developed female lead character in the story.

    The movie is called "Obvious Child."

    I saw it, last week. Not all I was hoping for but it's worth a watch, if you like indie comedies.

      Thanks for the insight. Probably best for me not go in with higher than average hopes.

        Bump this thread, once you've seen it; the film's worth discussing.

          the trailer made it look insufferable

            I'll have to give it a chance. The trailer is smart, well-edited, and the music bed is peppy and light, so my bet is on a happier ending than the trailer's allusion. It seems well-cast, also, and personally I welcome the sight onscreen of those who aren't mega-stars, especially when they seem to play (act) so well. The movie "CHEF" was this same kind of film for me, and it was thoroughly enjoyable, as I hope "OBVIOUS CHILD" will also be enjoyable. I'm not always 'rainbows and lollipops' about everything, but in this case it seems it is so.
