Obvious Child

Jenny Slate Movie

Jenny Slate’s movie about an accidental couple and a unexpected abortion, is streaming on kanopy.com. The newly-relevant 2014 film feels like watching a close friend’s navigation of early adult life, caught by circumstances.

I watched, remembering the Ben Folds Five song “Brick” and thinking about nice people making hard decisions. No spoilers here if you haven’t seen it. It’s a good watch, as a discussion starter for persons who haven’t had to think about what they or their friends would do, if this happens to them.
