Emma Seligman’s sharp-witted and hilarious debut feature is an affectionate, caustic comedy about one woman’s troubles. The story focuses on 20-something Danielle (brilliantly played by newcomer Rachel Sennott), a perennial student who’s been lying to her supportive but overbearing parents about her academic career—which is pretty much nonexistent. There is much more she’s not telling them about, including her steamy relationship with an older man. Forced by her parents to attend a shiva, Danielle is mortified when she bumps into her embittered ex, and several other unexpected conflicts arise. Shiva Baby is a one-of-a-kind, and not for the faint of heart.
