Obvious Child

Comedian Jenny Slate ("SNL," "Parks and Recreation") plays a struggling stand-up comedian who gets dumped by her boyfriend, loses her job and finds out she's pregnant--all on the eve of Valentine's Day. Like some world-weary flipside to Juno, this indie dramedy deals head-on with the issue of abortion and actually manages to weave some solid laughs around it. The script is slight and almost too hip for the room, but Slate is just incredible, balancing between rudely funny and tearfully fragile. 84 minutes R.
