In her feature film debut, director Emma Seligman shows how a simple family gathering can quickly turn into a directionless young woman's worst nightmare. Hilarity ensues as one awkward situation after another unfolds, though you’ll also be desperately hoping that Danielle can manage to set herself free from them. Shiva Baby is skilfully written, pertinent and almost thriller-like in its description of Danielle's encounters with her family, as well as with her own shortcomings.
This film is available at Kosmorama Digital 8th – 28th March.
