Pamela Adlon’s feature film directorial debut was a smashing success at SXSW. BABES had the theatre in stitches as Ilana Glazer (Eden) and her co-star Michelle Buteau (Dawn) took to the screen as comedic best friends. The plot premise is getting pregnant after a one-night stand and leaning on your best friend to get you through it.

“This is the first film where a woman wrote her story of getting pregnant and dealing with the changes in the central relationship in her life,” Glazer told us proudly and in this case, “it’s with her best friend.” Of course, Glazer also hopes that people will laugh and that there will be space for viewers to feel their feelings. Glazer, alongside Josh Rabinowitz, wrote the project as well as stared in it. The Broad City actress’s comedy is unparalleled.

Conversely, Adlon said she wants people to come away from BABES “knowing it’s OK to ask questions and have hard conversations” and that “the love is always there with women.” As a mother of three, she is a veteran in the motherhood department and an Emmy winner, and her directing was indicative of both. If you’ve seen Better Things, you know what maternal instincts I am referring to. Adlon’s warmth and charisma could be felt through her direction.

Rabinowitz shared that he feels “the movie, at its core, is about friendship and how friendships evolve” and “also having a lot of fun with how hard parenting is.” As a parent, he used some personal experience. He said, “It’s always loved more than the difficulty,” but it sure inspired him to write a hilarious script about some parenting moments.

The cast and crew had fun on this set through the late nights and indy budget. They made a magical movie that touches people’s hearts and keeps them laughing and getting creative with scenes and funny odes to female friendships. A few studios chased BABES, but in the end, NEON landed the rights and BABES will be released to the public on May 17th.
