Ethan Shanfeld Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ career has been defined by Hall of Fame sitcom roles in “Seinfeld” and “Veep” (not to mention her Emmy-winning turn in “The New Adventures of Old Christine”).

But in her years since dominating the small screen, she’s gravitated toward a diverse array of film projects. She played an oblivious Brentwood mom in Kenya Barris’ race relations comedy “You People,” a writer betrayed by her husband in Nicole Holofcener’s Sundance dramedy “You Hurt My Feelings” and the conniving CIA director in a handful of Marvel projects, including the upcoming “Thunderbolts.” But perhaps her boldest project to date is A24’s “Tuesday,” the debut film from writer-director Daina O.

Pusić in which Louis-Dreyfus stars as a mother forced to confront the fact that her terminally ill teenage daughter is dying.

Death is a character, too, in the form of a talking parrot who delivers fate and, in one scene, smokes weed and sings along to Ice Cube.
