Appropriate Behavior

Friday, January 16 - Thursday, January 22, 2015

Acceptance seems to elude Shirin (writer-director Akhavan, newly cast in Girls) from all sides.

When her brother announces his engagement to a parentally approved prize Iranian catch, Shirin embarks on her own private rebellion in a series of pansexual escapades, while trying to decipher how things went so wrong.
