Here’s a brand new trailer and poster for one of our favourite films of the year, the exceptional Shiva Baby. MUBI has the rights for the UK for this one and they will open it in cinemas with a special Q+A for one night only on 9th June. It will then hit MUBI on 11th June. Emma Seligman writes and directs this, her debut feature.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A darkly playful comedy of unease about a young bisexual woman grappling with tradition and independence, Shiva Baby tells the story of Danielle (Rachel Sennott), 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.
I caught this at the recent SXSW festival and absolutely loved it. Be sure to check it out when it debuts next month. Here’s the new trailer.
