The unravelling strands of aimless college senior Danielle’s life collide at a shiva in this cringingly hilarious feature debut from writer/director Emma Seligman. Faced by the judgment of her parents, the presence of her ex-girlfriend, and a surprise appearance from her sugardaddy lover along with his wife and screaming baby, Danielle (Sennott) tries desperately to fend off a complete breakdown.

“An exhilarating and compassionate film about love, death, loneliness – and the life-affirming importance of dessert.” – Lisa Mullen, Sight & Sound
