Using a sharp tongue instead of a steak knife, the mom in Kilmartin carefully cuts stinging social commentary into sound-bite-size wisecracks, the easier to feed them to connoisseurs of sarcasm. But even then, judging from the what-did-she-just-say-can-we-laugh-at-this? reaction of many audience members listening to Kilmartin record Five Minutes to Myself, some people still find it hard to swallow rips on abortion, racial stereotypes, and, yes, rape. Well, lighten up, people, and listen up: Kilmartin is adorably grim.
