Here’s the first trailer for Sundance comedy Obvious Child, one of the most pleasant surprises of this year’s Utah-set film festival.

A film that gives former ‘SNL‘ cast member Jenny Slate her first film lead is hitting theaters this summer on June 6th via A24.

Directed by Gillian Robespierre and based on her own 2009 short of the same name, the film co-stars Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann, David Cross, Gabe Liedman and Richard Kind.

The trailer provides a pretty good taste of the dark comedy’s scruffy, straight-talking charms.

Watch an extended look at romantic comedy that touches on more complicated human issues than the average example of the genre.

Donna Stern is a 27-year-old Brooklyn comedian whose unapologetically lewd, warmhearted wit is pretty irresistible with audiences. When she gets heartlessly “dumped up with” by her two-timing boyfriend, Donna plunges into some light stalking and heavy moping. Hitting a serious low point, she performs a dreary set of break-up vengeance and Holocaust jokes and drunkenly falls into bed with a nice young professional named Max—not remotely her type. A few weeks later, condoms be damned, she’s pregnant. Now Donna, incapable of telling anything but the naked truth when she’s on stage, will resort to any means to avoid telling Max the score. As her date with Planned Parenthood draws near, she must confront her doubts and fears like never before.
