Synopsis:

This refreshingly honest and darkly funny Sundance hit stars Jenny Slate (PARKS AND RECREATION) as 20-something Brooklyn stand-up comedian, who must face up to some big life decisions after breaking up with her boyfriend, losing her job and getting pregnant in the space of a few days. Subtly channelling FRANCES HA and powered by a fabulous breakout performance from Slate, this American indie is an uproarious delight.

Critical reaction:
  • A glorious jumping bean comedy that moves from the profane to the poignant in the blink of an eye.
