A twentysomething, bisexual Iranian-American woman struggles to conform to traditional Persian standards, figure out her stalled career and negotiate her troubled love life. Boasting some great set pieces – the threesome scene is destined to become a classic – Appropriate Behaviour is a witty, razor-sharp comedy that breathes the same air as the films of Woody Allen and the work of Lena Dunham. But director and star Desiree Akhavan has a voice very much of her own.
