Yngvild Sve Flikke blends live action and animation in this slacker comedy about a young woman thrust into adulthood when she discovers she’s pregnant.

Price: $5.99 + taxes and fees

After a not-so-romantic one-night stand, 23-year-old graphic design dropout Rakel (Kristine Kujath Thorp) discovers she’s pregnant. Determined to get an abortion, she heads to the doctor, only to find that she’s already six months along. With aspirations of a creative life, she isn’t ready to sacrifice her dreams for motherhood, and views adoption as her only choice. That’s when one of her drawings — a masked fetus she names Ninjababy — jumps out of her notebook, animates her fears, and calls into question just about every aspect of her life. In her adaptation of Inga H Sætre’s award-winning graphic novel Fallteknikk, Norwegian director Yngvild Sve Flikke blends live action and animation to craft a slacker comedy heavy on both humour and heart.
