Desiree Akhavan as Shirin in Appropriate Behaviour

Desiree Akhavan as Shirin in Appropriate Behaviour

Appropriate Behaviour is based around the life of Shirin, a young Persian and bisexual woman living in New York City. 

The film’s director Desiree Akhavan also stars in the lead role.

It follows the highs and lows that any young person will go through.

But it’s also a film about identity and acceptance. It shows Shirin accepting her sexuality, and attempting to reconcile with her socially conservative family.
