I was sad when Jenny Slate got the boot from SNL – presumably for dropping the f-bomb. She provided me with many lulz, especially as Tina Tina Charneuse:
So…I was v. excited to hear that she was starring in the new film Obvious Child – which looks to be quite awesome (and has great reviews). Aside from Slate, the cast includes Gaby Hoffmann (Adam’s sister from Girls) and David Cross and it’s directed by first-timer Gillian Robespierre. It’s been described as kind of a dark romantic comedy….a romantic comedy that involves an abortion which ultimately leads its protagonist to grow and change in a positive way.
Check out the trailer:
And…hooray for me – it’s opening at my favorite movie theater Nitehawk today!
