Description

“Appropriate Behavior is alive. The screenplay is packed with smart remarks, clever and unpredicatable turns of phrase that knocks you off balance."- Stephen Holden, the New York Times

“Funny, risky and in excitingly bad taste.”Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Remember the name Desiree Akhavan. You're going to be hearing it a lot in the future." - Stephanie Merry, The Washington Post

Shirin, the daughter of well-to-do Iranian expatriates who left after the 1979 revolution, lives in Brooklyn, teaching films to five-year-olds. Having dated men, she is now in a tempestous relationship with the severe, sexily bespectacled Maxine and unsure how or if to come out to her parents as gay, or bisexual.
