Obvious Child…

13 Jun

I thought the female lead in this film was developmentally disabled, but it turns out that she’s just “edgy.” NPR describes Donna Stern as “an aspiring standup comic in her late 20s who’s out of her depth in the grown-up world.” Huh? She’s almost thirty. She is in fact a member of the adult world. She is an adult. She has been for more than a decade. There are soldiers who went off to Iraq at eighteen and served a few tours who are in fact younger than this film’s titular woman child.

Per NPR: “She’s a big baby, someone who can’t take care of herself, let alone a little baby.”

Dear God. Also, screenwriters attempting to model your characters’ speech patterns after Buffy and Juno, those characters were teenagers.
