“The delightful byproduct of living in a post-Girls pop-culture-verse is that even if you don’t care for Lena Dunham, or if you find her creative output too preciously self-effacing (or self-aware, or self-interested, or any other self-[blank] adjective you can muster), her influence is likely to inspire other media that does tickle your fancy. Case in point: Appropriate Behavior, Persian-American filmmaker Desiree Akhavan’s remarkable feature debut, and a film that’s very clearly a cousin to HBO’s vaunted comedy drama (now entering into its fourth season on a boob tube near you).” (Via Paste Magazine.)
