10/21/21 – 11/4/21
Our most popular virtual title makes its debut at the Capitol Theater. 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 sugar daddy, Max, arrives at the shiva with his accomplished wife, Kim, 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.

“[Emma] Seligman packs so many awkward interactions into Shiva Baby that it never feels like it runs out of comic potential. Sennott’s performance is equally impressive.” — Monica Castillo, RogerEbert.com
