Fifth about The Seventh

Obvious Child

Obvious Child: despite the courage to deal with a hot-button issue, Gillian Robespierre’s film story is very simple and generally unremarkable. The central character is not very relatable (part of it comes from the brand of humor her stand-up comedy sketches displays, a reflection of her sense of self; comedy tastes are rather personal, but fart jokes are generally easy and unfunny) or well-defined; Jenny Slate’s performance doesn’t add much, and neither does the rest of the cast. Visually very dull, but it must be commended by avoiding the use of handheld camera.
