In this Jewish zombie romcom, Zach (Dane DeHaan) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advnatage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. But the newly returned Beth isn't quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach's whole world takes a turn for the worse. Imitating what Dr. Frankenstein did with his monster, writer/director Jeff Baena assembles disparate parts of his film into a new whole and jolts fresh life into it. By fusing elements of a young love story and a zombie move, he concocts a wickedly funny and a shockingly poignant film. With its killer soundtrack and all-star cast, Life After Beth will leave you dying to see it again. Also stars John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon as Beth's Jewish parents.
