Obvious Child




Stays true to the rom com formula, while still being genuinely entertaining, and even pushing social boundaries. Bravo.

Thoughts (spoilers)

This film files down the razor sharp edges of a controversial subject (abortion), and does the impossible by making it deeply relatable to a general audience. While still being entertaining. It even does one better by staying within the boundaries of rom com rules, and resisting the urge to be preachy- or worse- dour.

My only criticism would be that the male love interest was a little too perfect, to the point where my suspension of disbelief was being tested. Hugh Grant style disbelief. Nevertheless, this is a minor point.

Absolutely worth watching.
