enny Slate (TV's "Saturday Night Live") gives the breakout performance of the year playing Donna Stern, a standup comedian that gets dumped, fired and pregnant just in time for Valentine's Day. Obvious Child, "one of the most startling, honest romantic comedies to appear onscreen in years" (Ann Hornaday, Washington Post), arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) October 7th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. An A24 theatrical release, Obvious Child features a hilarious cast including Gaby Hoffmann (HBO's "Girls"), David Cross (TV's "Arrested Development") and Jake Lacy (TV's "The Office"). Obvious Child is a true Sundance gem: a heartfelt discovery packed tight with raw, energetic comedy and moments of poignant honesty and vulnerability. 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 that audiences will recognize, cheer for and love. 


For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her hysterical and 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 winds up unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand, she is forced to face the uncomfortable realities of independent womanhood for the first time. Donna's drunken hookup - and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment - turns out to be the beginning of a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment.


The Obvious Child Blu-ray and DVD feature an audio commentary with cast and crew, a "making of" featurette, extended scenes and the original Obvious Child short. Obvious Child will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98 respectively.
