Obvious Child: They Finally Made an Abortion Comedy -- and It's Good
Critics' Pick ✔
It's finally hot enough to stop Instagramming sunsets and seek out the air-conditioned comfort of your local movie theater. And what better way to let the back sweat dry than with aging stars in sci-fi whirlwinds, moving documentaries, edge-of-your-seat thrillers and political...propaganda. While the harrowingly difficult Small Small Thing and the infuriating Citizen Koch might remove all your faith in humanity, Obvious Child presents the first abortion-themed comedy. So while you watch Tom Cruise die and re-die and re-die yet again, at least you can take solace in that for every step backwards, there's a half step forwards. Here's your Village Voice film section in fast-forward.
