Danielle meets her family to attend a post Shiva gathering. If having to deal with the prying eyes of family and friends wasn't bad enough, her ex-girlfriend shows up...and so does her boyfriend...and his wife...and their baby.
Wickedly funny and on target story of a family gathering will have you laughing and squirming. This is film version of a gathering of family that we;ve all been at. Sure not everyone is Jewish, but the complications are something we've all experienced. I've been to gatherings like this and I know of what this film speaks.
I loved this film. It was put solidly on my radar by Danielle Solzman who had first tweeted good things about the film and then wrote a wonderful review that made me want to see it more. I want to do for you what Danielle did for me which is put the film on your radar. I want you to search it out and find its wonders.
Certain to be on my end of the year lists- SHIVA BABY is highly recommended.
And now if you don't mind I'm going to go watch the film again
