Two that Gina and I really enjoyed recently are Amira & Sam and Obvious Child. Checking other reviews, there aren't many who thought Amira & Sam (Drafthouse Cinemas, 2015) got past the improbability of a U.S. Iraq-Afghanistan war vet (Sam, played by Martin Starr) falling in love with an illegal Iraqi immigrant (Amira, played by Dina Shibabi) who initially doesn't want anything to do with him. The plot is rife with instances of bigotry, the lack of ethics on Wall Street--those elements are upfront and believable--and plenty of sweet moments. Sam, for instance, tries his hand at standup comedy and has difficulty transferring his real-life dry humor into a palatable onstage delivery. He can't connect with Amira in even the most casual and friendly way at first, and these surprising and amusing moments will stick with me for a long time.
Significantly better is Obvious Child (A24 Films, 2014)--like the other film, also set in New York--with an actual comedian (Jenny Slate in the role of Donna Stern) and her ups and downs with romance, trust, friendships, her relationship with her parents and then the really big personal issue the script tackles. Jake Lacy is Max, the patient boyfriend that the comic never seems to accept as if he's too good to be true, while Polly Draper brings depth to her stellar role as the mother, Nancy. The humor in Obvious Child is sometimes nasty but the overall depiction of a gritty lifestyle tempered by some lovely elements really touches the soul. Not recommended if you're against women's reproductive rights, I guess.
