Shiva Baby

This clever, abrasive debut is a notable achievement... It all feels closely observed, no doubt inspired by real characters, which makes it all the funnier. ★★★★ ” David Stratton

The last person Danielle expects to run into at a family shiva (week-long mourning period in Judaism) is her sugar daddy Max, and his beautiful wife and baby… oh, and her ex-girlfriend too! What a recipe for… complete anxiety and chaos?!

This sharp-witted dark comedy from first-time feature writer/director Emma Seligman is a quirky yet sensitive exploration of the pressure young people face today.
