Directed by Desiree Akhavan

Iranian-American writer and director, Desiree Akhavan, is a triple threat. She wrote, directed, and stars in her latest film, Appropriate Behavior. With Lena-Dunham-like-wit (Akhavan joined the cast of Girls in the fourth season), and as talented as Tina Fey, Akhavan shows off her talents as Shirin, the sexual, beautiful, Brooklynite reeling from a recent breakup with her long-time girlfriend.
