Appropriate Behavior In Theaters And VOD January 16th
Iranian-American filmmaker Desiree Akhavan’s film ‘Appropriate Behavior’ is in theaters and VOD January 16th.
For Shirin (Desiree Akhavan), being part of a perfect Persian family isn’t easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn’t know she’s bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine (Rebecca Henderson), can’t understand why she doesn’t tell them. Even the six-year-old boys in her movie making class are too ADD to focus on her for more than a second. Following a family announcement of her brother’s betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of pansexual escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.
Desiree has received A Film Independent Spirit Award for first screenplay.
