This excruciatingly dark indie comedy will have you on the edge of your seat

You might know Rachel Sennott from her distinctive social media presence: the 25-year-old American actor and comedian has more than 237,000 followers across Instagram and Twitter, where she leans gleefully into a bratty Gen Z persona. Now, she's starring in Shiva Baby, the debut feature film by director Emma Seligman, in cinemas this week and now available to stream online. It's set at a claustrophobic Jewish funeral service, where Danielle (Sennott) has to endure embarrassing relatives, simmering sexual tension with an ex, and family friends badgering her about her weight and love life. But that pales in comparison to the central tension point: Max, the man who has been paying Danielle for sex, is also at the shiva.

"Shiva Baby epitomises a new genre I am calling 'awks-core,'" says Stylist's acting deputy digital editor Katy Harrington. "The tension builds to a nightmarish fever pitch: will Danielle expose Max in front of everyone, including his wife (Dianna Agron)? Will he tell her parents her sex work secret? It's almost excruciating to watch at times: full of uncomfortable truths about sex, money, snobbery, death and tradition. But still, I couldn't bring myself to look away – and like its star, no one could accuse it of being boring." Watch in select cinemas and on Mubi now

5 rustic Cornish recipes that will transport you straight to the coast

Linen is having a heatwave moment – here's where to buy it

Linen hasn't always been cool. For much of this century, it was associated with the kind of earthy, shapeless pieces you could imagine your secondary school art teacher wearing on holiday. But in recent years, designers including Rejina Pyo, Loewe and Louis Vuitton have reclaimed it as a hot-weather essential thanks to its relaxed, airy feel. This week, Whistles launched a linen capsule collection with the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp, championing the fabric's eco credentials (made from flax, it's 100% renewable and biodegradable). Expect breezy shirts and tees, softly tailored shorts and blazers, and strappy jumpsuits and dresses in block neutral and primary shades (from £49).

Of course, Whistles isn't the only brand singing linen's praises: mother-daughter team Michi and Lea Wieser have been devoted to the fabric since launching their cult sustainable label Arkitaip in 2018. Their effortless Anna blouse (£120) is a Stylist Loves favourite, while the Greta jumpsuit (£195) is pure 'bohemian Brooklyn socialite'. Then there's 'slow fashion' brand Ren London, which produces small batches of linen investment pieces to minimise textile waste. The ecru Rowe top, with a sailor collar and wooden Portuguese buttons (£165), will see you through endless summers to come – just add woven sandals and a basket bag. Linen, but make it modern.
