“Shiva Baby”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: February 1st, 2021 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

In Emma Seligman’s adroitly crafted first film, Danielle (Rachel Sennott) reluctantly joins her parents at a post funeral gathering.

Where she almost immediately sees the last two people she wants to run into.

A fellow with whom she’s just had sex.

And a former lover.

Plus there are her parents friends, all of whom want to know what she’s doing, why she’s not in college, and why she doesn’t have a boyfriend yet?

The concise and worthy 80 minute movie is but one of the entries in this year’s Louisville Jewish Film Festival, which is all virtual. To learn about the other enticing movies, and streaming information, click here.
