Kate teaches a bicycle maintenance class. She is pregnant and does not want to wait three weeks for an abortion, so she tries a parsley diet recommended by her herbalist friend Chloe. All of Kate's friends are envious of her boyfriend Ollie, "The King of Contraception", and urge her to tell him about her pregnancy. But Kate wonders if she should leave Ollie.Written by
Charming little Canadian film that marks the debut of director Andrea Dorfman. The story follows a bicycle maintenance teacher named Kate who is in a seemingly perfect relationship with the perfect boyfriend, Ollie, a sexual education instructor. Trouble comes in the form of a possible pregnancy for Kate, resulting in her re-evaluation of how much she wants to be in her relationship with Ollie despite his apparent perfection. A good herbologist friend recommends to her the ingestion of mass amounts of parsley for the purposes of a natural abortion (supposedly the acidic qualities in parsley will interrupt a very new pregnancy). The film's humble budget is quite obvious from the get-go (some bad looping included), but Dorfman's sharp observations of her deliciously quirky characters are so marvelous that it's really all you notice when watching it.
