Unpregnant release date
This HBO Max Original will be streamable on September 10.
The film stars Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira as two teen trouble makers with hearts of gold and a complicated history together (and apart). HBO describes the plot as:
Seventeen-year-old Veronica (Haley Lu Richardson) never thought she’d want to fail a test—that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with a blue plus. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 1000 mile hilarious road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend, Bailey (Barbie Ferreira) where they discover sometimes the most important choice you’ll make in life is who your friends are.
Along with Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira, Alex MacNicoll, Breckin Meyer, Sugar Lyn Beard, Ramona Young, Betty Who, and Giancarlo Esposito are also featured in the film, to name a few famous faces.
