We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.
In “Shiva Baby,” plot-wise, nothing much happens. Our protagonist, played wonderfully by Rachael Sennott goes to a shiva with her family, she sits shiva, and she leaves. BUT there really is so much more to this movie. It captures the claustrophobia of being at a family event and the tiny power dynamics at play between each and every person there.
We get into the movie, AND have a long and healthy “What Else Have You Been Watching” segment where I finally watched a weird movie that Kpolly has been raving about for years, we do Q&A’s with the crowd and have a lot of fun.
Next time we will be in person!
