After wrapping up the run of her acclaimed FX series “Better Things,” Pamela Adlon makes her feature directorial debut with the riotous Babes. This bawdy comedy about two friends navigating different stages of motherhood presents an unfiltered look at ways in which the experience is both joyous and revolting. Eden (Ilana Glazer, “Broad City”) has been a steadfast friend to Dawn (Michelle Buteau, Always Be My Maybe) as she and her husband welcomed their first two children. So when Eden decides to have a baby after getting pregnant from a one-night stand that ghosts her, she looks to Dawn to get her through the wild ride on which she’s about to embark. The film mines the unbelievably long list of “things you never knew before getting pregnant” for gross-out laughs earned through brutal honesty. Yet Babes is, at its core, a paean to female friendship and resilience. Frank and funny, it manages to craft a vital look at parts of a woman’s life rarely, if ever, seen on screen.
