Marking the debut of writer-director Emma Seligman, SHIVA BABY is a darkly playful comedy of unease about a young bisexual woman grappling with tradition and independence, featuring a standout lead performance from emerging actor-comedian Rachel Sennott. The story follows Danielle, a college student on the verge of graduating who is faced with a series of increasingly awkward and humiliating encounters at a climactic day-long shiva, a Jewish gathering of friends and family during a time of mourning. A breakout hit at 2020’s Toronto International Film Festival and SXSW, the film co-stars Dianna Agron, Fred Melamed and Polly Draper.
