Appropriate Behaviour 15 rating

Desiree Akhavan directs and stars in this witty, razor-sharp and fearless comedy following the sexual misadventures of a bisexual Brooklynite.

Comedy 2015 86 mins

Director: Desiree Akhavan



A twentysomething, bisexual Iranian-American woman struggles to conform to traditional Persian standards, figure out her stalled career and negotiate her troubled love life.

Boasting some great set pieces – the threesome scene is destined to become a classic – Appropriate Behaviour is a witty, razor-sharp comedy that breathes the same air as the films of Woody Allen and the work of Lena Dunham. But director and star Desiree Akhavan has a voice very much of her own.
