When was the last time you saw a film with a female protagonist you felt like you could actually relate to? You know what I'm talking about. The film world is saturated with rom-com, super women, nymphomaniac, unemployed but NYC-dwelling bull shit. Where are the normal women? Complaints aside, there are high hopes for Jenny Slate's character in Obvious Child, which opens in Dallas June 20.

If it lives up to expectations (which people who saw it at DIFF say that it does), we'll want to give big hugs Jenny Slate and film writer/director Gillian Robespierre. If it doesn't, we'll want to raise our hand - Lean In style - and ask what the hell went wrong? Luckily, we'll have the chance to see the movie and meet those two headstrong ladies this Thursday at the Obvious Child screening at the Angelika Film Center, thanks to Central Track and A24. Here's the RSVP information.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
