Obvious Child is an honest comedy about what happens when stand-up comedian Donna Stern (Jenny Slate) gets dumped, fired and pregnant just in time for Valentine's Day. After her boyfriend reveals he's sleeping with her friend, broken-down Donna performs an abominable set and has a one-night stand with Max (Jake Lacy), a young professional not remotely her type. One month later, Donna's pregnant! Emotionally, intellectually, and financially unprepared, Donna seeks the choice most responsible to her future. But then there's Max. The two share a surprising wit and warmth, but Donna's afraid to trust after her recent heartbreak, and the more she's drawn to Max, the greater lengths she goes to avoid the truth. Donna pushes Max away until he finally goes, but if he really is — or was — the one, she has to learn to trust him. There's only one place Donna can be truly brave, vulnerable, and honest: on stage. Whatever Max and the world think, Donna's going to be okay. And who knows, maybe Max will still be her Valentine, even at Planned Parenthood.
