Directed by Emma Seligman
Starring: Rachel Sennott, Dianna Agron, Molly Gordon, Polly Draper
Shiva Baby is a darkly playful comedy of chaos about a young bisexual woman grappling with tradition and independence over the course of one climactic day-long shiva, a Jewish gathering of friends and family during a time of mourning. Featuring a standout lead performance from emerging actor-comedian Rachel Sennott, the acclaimed feature debut from writer-director Emma Seligman is bold, modern filmmaking at its most daring, and hilarious.
