Let’s take a detour, a very hard left turn to be more precise, from the noisy Summer block busters and head to the independent side streets of cinema. And, as is usually the case, the side street is in New York City. This is another quirky comedy about an off-kilter, free-spirit trying to make a life for herself while rebelling against adulthood as her 20′s come to a close, the same territory treaded by Party Girl and Frances Ha.

That’s because some very tough, very adult decisions are in store for this Obvious Child.
