Want to see the critically acclaimed, abortion-focused romantic comedy Obvious Child for free AND before its official release date? Yes? Well, good news! Jezebel is giving away 50 free passes (that include a +1) to screenings across the country.
If you haven't read or heard anything about Obvious Child, here's the film's official synopsis:
For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her incredibly relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna gets dumped, loses her job, and finds herself pregnant just in time for Valentine's Day, she has to navigate the murky waters of independent adulthood for the first time. As she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy, and a surprising new suitor, Donna begins to discover that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn't facing it all on her own. It's allowing herself to accept the support and love of others. And be truly vulnerable. Never failing to find the comedy and humanity in each awkward situation she encounters, Donna finds out along the way what it means to be as brave in life as she is on stage. Anchored by a breakout performance from Jenny Slate, OBVIOUS CHILD is a winning discovery, packed tight with raw, energetic comedy and moments of poignant human honesty. Writer/Director Gillian Robespierre handles the topic of Donna's unwanted pregnancy with a refreshing matter-of-factness rarely seen onscreen. And with Donna, Slate and Robespierre have crafted a character for the ages – a female audiences will recognize, cheer for, and love.
Insider gossip: I saw the film at a screening last week and loved it. Gillian Robespierre's writing and directing manages to be both tender and lacking in preciousness and Jenny Slate (who you might know from Parks and Recreation, Marcel the Shell, Kroll Show and Saturday Night Live) gives an incredibly raw and moving performance.
Passes are available to screenings in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, La Jolla (San Diego), Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Scottsdale, Seattle and Washington, D.C. They are extremely limited so please, for the sake of your fellow Jezzies, only RSVP if you know you can come. All screenings take place on Tuesday, June 3rd.
