This week’s Kickstart Sunday pick is the upcoming comedy feature Obvious Child, written and directed by Gillian Robespierre.  The film is set to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and stars Jenny Slate (Saturday Night Live) and Jake Lacy (The Office), and features Gaby Hoffmann, Gabe Liedman, Richard Kind, Polly Draper, and David Cross.

Although the film is almost finished, the crew needs some additional funds to cover color correction, sound mixing, and all the final touches in order to get it read for the premiere.  Click here to show your support and donate today and hit the jump for more information.


OBVIOUS CHILD is an honest comedy about what happens when Brooklyn comedian Donna Stern (Jenny Slate) gets dumped, fired and pregnant just in time for the worst/best Valentine’s Day of her life. Forever nudged by her parents to make better choices, Donna’s forced to do just that when a one-night stand leads to a difficult decision that does and does not define the rest of her life. Though confident in her choice, Donna must gain the confidence to believe in her talent, herself, and the best in those around her, especially one surprisingly decent guy (Jake Lacy) who just might make this the worst/best Valentine’s Day ever.
