Writer-director Emma Seligman brings her feature film Baby Shiva in theaters and on TVOD from today – and it’s a pretty funny ride.

Posted by Utopia, Baby Shiva follows a young woman who tries to keep the different versions of herself in order when she meets her sugar daddy and ex-girlfriend in a shiva with her parents.

Let’s develop all of this.

Danielle (Rachel Sennott) is a student about to graduate. She has a sugar daddy Max (Danny Deferrari) who pays her regularly. One day, after passing from her sugar daddy to the shiva of her neurotic parents’ family, she is awarded the third degree by various separated relatives regarding her appearance and the lack of post-graduate plans. Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend, Maya (Molly Gordon) is getting all the praise because she entered law school.

Things get even worse when her sugar daddy shows up with his accomplished wife Kim (Diana Agron) and their baby.

As a result, Danielle begins to struggle as she juggles her different characters and insecurities. Hilarity ensues.

Shiva baby, which also stars Polly Draper and Fred Melamed, is based on the 2018 Seligman short of the same name. It premiered at SXSW in 2020 and performed at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Every Breath You Take – not to be confused with the iconic song from The Police – is a psychological thriller that follows a psychiatrist (Casey Affleck), whose career is put in jeopardy when his patient commits suicide. When he invites his patient’s surviving brother (Sam Claflin) to his home to meet his wife (Michelle Monaghan) and daughter, his family life is suddenly torn apart.

The film is directed by Vaughn Stein and written by David K. Murray and also stars Veronica Ferres, India Eisley.

Vertical Entertainment is releasing the film in select theaters and on VOD today.

Get your cowboy hat, lasso, and leggings ready, because Ricky Staub’s directorial debut feature Concrete cowboy came on Netflix from today.

Inspired by the novel “Ghetto Cowboy” by G. Neri and adapted by Staub and Dan Walser, Concrete cowboy premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2020. The story follows Cole (Caleb McLaughlin), 15, kicked out of school in Detroit and sent north to Philadelphia to live with Harp (Idris Elba), his former father.

Harp has an interesting life. On the one hand, a horse lives in his apartment – but that’s what he finds comfort in. He rehabilitates horses for downtown cowboys at Fletcher Street Stables, a true black urban riding community that has provided a haven for the neighborhood residents for over 100 years.

Torn between his growing respect for his father’s community and his reemerging friendship with his troubled cousin Smush (Jharrel Jerome), Cole begins to redefine his life as the stables themselves are threatened by overwhelming gentrification.

The film explores a neglected subculture and stars co-stars Byron Bowers, Lorraine Toussaint, Clifford “Method Man” Smith and actual members of the Fletcher Street Stables.

Best International Feature Film Oscar Nominee The man who sold his skin Writer-director Kaouther Ben Hania is set to open in New York theaters today before rolling out to Los Angeles and other select cities on April 9.

The film tells the story of Sam Ali, a sensitive and impulsive young Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war. In order to be able to travel to Europe and live with the love of his life, he agrees to have his back tattooed by one of the most sulphurous contemporary artists in the world. Transforming his own body into a prestigious work of art, however, Sam will realize that his decision could actually mean something other than freedom.

The film also stars Yahya Mahyni, Dea Liane, Koen De Bouw and Monica Bellucci. It should be noted that Ben Hania goes down in history as the first Muslim woman to be nominated in the Oscar category for best international feature film.

Hitting digital platforms today is The believer, a horror thriller written and directed by Shan Serafin and stars Sophie Kargman, Aidan Bristow and Billy Zane. (This film should not be confused with the pre-Notebook Ryan Gosling, 2001 independent film directed by Henry Bean.)

The story follows Lucas (Bristow) is an unemployed nuclear scientist who struggles with tensions in his marriage after his wife Violet (Kargman) mysteriously terminates her pregnancy without her consent. As Lucas’ physical health begins to inexplicably deteriorate, Violet’s behavior becomes increasingly bizarre and he seeks clarity from his therapist, Dr. Benedict (Zane).

As Lucas is exhausted from his job search, strange things start to happen at home and his health gradually wanes. Benedict recommends trying alternative therapy, but that only makes matters worse. Lucas questions Benedict’s effectiveness as his grip on reality begins to wane. Violet’s deceptive behavior arouses her deepening suspicions, and after two mysterious guests visit, her insidious behavior becomes disturbing. Lucas’s anger and frustration turns to fear as Violet’s sinister intentions are revealed. Lucas tries in vain to escape the evil web she has woven, but by the time he finds out the truth, it may be too late.

Grear Patterson’s sports drama Giants being alone at Gravitas Ventures is slated to launch on cable and VOD on April 6.

The photo premiered at the Venice Film Festival and follows Bobby (Jack Irving), the star pitcher on his high school baseball team. He is a motherless dreamer whose alcoholic father loves him but remains distant and distant. His teammate Adam (Ben Irving) is the coach’s son, subject to heavy criticism at home with little support from his emotionally distant mother.

Caught between them is Caroline (Lily Gavin), a high school beauty from a seemingly perfect home who loves the two golden boys and just wants to go to prom. Set in a semi-rural landscape of verdant forests and pent-up nostalgia, famed mixed media artist Grear Patterson’s debut feature is a deeply personal story of youth and young manhood, retracing the ups and downs of love, sex, loneliness, friendship, baseball and death – as the pressure mounts to make it out alive.
