Obvious Child (2014)

This movie is not for everyone. I didn't think it was for me, Head of our Entertainment and Arts Department (HEAD). The language is a bit ... you know, that bodily language stuff that is more suited, well for others, like in-laws, who don't mind and often like that kind of language. Hey, it's set in Williamsburg, no not Williamsburg Virginia, in Brooklyn ... NYC, and if you're not a millennial, and you have a problem with bodily function language and such, get over it. I was surprised that I just did not stop half-way through, but half-way through there was a twist, so I kept going. From that point on, while the "language" did not make the movie more appealing, the movie starts down a different path where you don't know what is going to happen. It deals with some real issues and real people and real emotions, and I'm not going to spoil it. This movie is not for everyone, but if you want a different movie, this is a different movie. It's gotten tons of awards and rave reviews from real critics, the cast and acting are excellent, it's wonderfully shot, and it's definitely unique. It's not available on Netflix but it's free to stream on Amazon Prime.
