Storyline

For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her 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 an unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Written by A24 Films

Obvious Coming of Age
2 April 2019 | by keithparks42See all my reviews

'OC,' was a great heartwarming film. The realism in the bits and dialogue felt very fluid. There was not a single time I felt the cringe bug. Makes you think. In a good, happy-emoting way.
