“Well-made and wickedly bold.” —Playlist

Saturday Night Live alumnus Jenny Slate plays Brooklyn comic Donna Stern, who gets dumped, fired, and pregnant right before Valentine’s Day, forcing her to wade through a series of difficult decisions and emotions. This romantic comedy shows a rare use of humor as a way to explore the complexity of issues around abortion. Slate keeps her character consistently honest in her relationships—best friend, ex-boyfriend, one night stand—while making jokes about her life onstage nightly at comedy clubs. 2014, DCP, 85 minutes.

In person: Sundance Film Festival Director John Cooper.
