Review: Appropriate Behavior, 2015, dir. Desiree Akhavan


“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.)

One thought on “Review: Appropriate Behavior, 2015, dir. Desiree Akhavan

  1. This film is excellent. It’s about love, coming of age, queerness, straightness, New York (mostly Brooklyn), living with immigrant parents, so many things. The story telling is unique, witty, and pretty funny. Very dry humor.
