Desiree Akhavan in Appropriate Behaviour (film still)

Appropriate Behaviour

27 Feb 20151 Apr 2015

Join us for a special preview screening followed by a Q&A with director Desiree Akhavan on 27 February 2015, 6.30pm.

Bedevilled by the strictures of her Iranian upbringing, Shirin (director Desiree Akhavan) struggles to keep her bisexuality a secret from her family. Her somewhat spiky girlfriend Maxine (Rebecca Henderson, Compliance) struggles to understand why Shirin is still in the closet.

Eventually the couple split acrimoniously, and Shirin embarks on a series of ill-advised sexual escapades while spectacularly failing at a day job given to her by stoner friend Ken (30 Rock's fabulous Scott Adsit). Akhavan, who also wrote and directed this highly assured debut feature, has a natural smart-tongued talent, and the overall result is an often laugh-out-loud comedy of mores and manners, set in a cosmopolitan but clearly not always liberated New York City.

Appropriate Behaviour - Official Trailer - On DVD & On-Demand from 29th June '15
