Hey guys! Horrorella here...
A24 films has released a trailer for their upcoming comedy, OBVIOUS CHILD. The film stars Jenny Slate (SNL, PARKS AND RECREATION) as a comedian who is experiencing difficulty navigating the various rocks and bumps that life is throwing her way - among them, finding herself unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand. This film doesn't look to be headed in the normal rom-com direction though, as (GASP) the A-word is not only uttered, but actually looks to be part of the proceedings.
The film was a hit at Sundance earier this year, with praise being heaped on Slate's performance and the film's fearless, dirty sense of humor.
It looks to be a fun and unexpected subversion of some really well-worn territory, telling its own story in its own way. If the film operates with the same the level of honesty and down-to-earth charm on display in the trailer footage, I'll be psyched.
OBVIOUS CHILD was directed by Gillian Robespierre, and is set for release on June 6th.
What do you guys think?
