Appropriate Behaviour (15)

Appropriate Behaviour

All screenings will be shown with English subtitles (not HOH).

The screening on Sunday 7 July will be followed by a live or recorded Zoom Q&A with director Desiree Akhavan.

Appropriate Behaviour by writer/director/actress Desiree Akhavan follows a flawed, messy central character, who grapples to make sense of her LGBTQI+ and Iranian-American identities.

For Shirin (Desiree Akhavan), being part of a perfect family isn’t easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn’t know she’s bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine (Rebecca Henderson), can’t understand why she doesn’t tell them. Following a family announcement of her brother’s betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.

Appropriate Behaviour is an achingly cool, post-feminist comedy about what happens when a girl comes out and discovers that extraordinary is the new ordinary.

Presented in partnership with T A P E
