Obvious Child (2014)

Director: Gillian Robespierre. Cast: Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann. 84 min. Rated R. Comedy/Romance.

A young stand-up comedian is dumped by her boyfriend, and is notified the next day she'll soon lose her job at the local bookstore. Before any chance for recovery, she learns she's pregnant from a boy she just met, and wants an abortion she can't afford. Newcomers Jenny Slate and Jake Lacey are the most charming couple in recent years, in the very first feature of its director, which is a bitter satire that will break your heart more often than you expect. Looking forward to Gillian Robespierre's (whose?) next projects.
