Shiva Baby | Official Trailer


Emma Seligman's confident debut tells a playful, brilliantly anxious, sex-positive coming-of-age story set inside a tight-knit Jewish community. A near college graduate, Danielle, gets paid by her sugar daddy and rushes to meet her neurotic parents at a family shiva. Upon arrival, she is accosted by various estranged relatives about her appearance and lack of post-grad plans, while her confident ex-girlfriend, Maya, is applauded by everyone for getting into law school. Danielle's day takes an unexpected turn when her older lover arrives at the shiva with his accomplished wife and crying baby. As the day unfolds, Danielle struggles to keep up different versions of herself, fend off pressures from her family and confront her insecurities without completely losing it. D: Emma Seligman, US, 2021, 1h18m
