Donna (Jenny Slate), an aspiring 20-something comedian, finds herself accidentally pregnant and is catapulted into independent womanhood. Slate’s breakout performance is packed with raw, energetic comedy and poignant human honesty. Writer/director Gillian Robespierre handles the unwanted pregnancy with a rare matter-of-factness which may challenge some. Yet in Donna, Slate and Robespierre have crafted a character for the age—one that viewers recognize, cheer for and love.
