Unexpected

Directed by Kris Swanberg
With Cobie Smulders, Gail Bean, Anders Holm, Elizabeth McGovern
2015, 85min

 

When high school teacher Sam (How I Met Your Mother’s Smulders) discovers she’s pregnant, the trajectory of her life takes an abrupt turn. Boyfriend becomes fiancé and career dreams stall as Sam navigates this new, unsteady terrain. When one of her best and brightest students, Jasmine (charismatic newcomer Bean), confides that she’s also expecting, the pair swap insecurities and aspirations—and find the boundaries between comforter and comforted growing murkier by the day. Swanberg’s first foray into the mainstream indie scene is a sensitive depiction of modern motherhood, addressing privilege, age, and wisdom with honesty and bite. A Film Arcade release.
