“Akhavan is very much her own artist—with a polyglot urban voice that comes off like an unholy cross between Fran Lebowitz, Junot Diaz, Tina Fey, and Hanif Kureishi.” – Logan Hill, Rolling Stone

Dir. Desiree Akhavan
Comedy | U.S.A. / U.K. | 2014 | 90 min.

In this hilarious new comedy, Shirin is struggling to become an ideal Persian daughter, politically correct bisexual, and hip young Brooklynite, but is failing miserably in her attempt at all identities. This complex and often funny autobiographical tale of a young woman, still closeted when in the presence of her strict Iranian parents, captures the feeling of being caught between self-doubt and self-possession. Desiree Akhavan’s
debut as writer, director, and star ushers in a welcome new voice among young filmmakers.
