Description For Shirin, being part of a perfect Persian family isn't easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn't know she's bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine, can't understand why she doesn't tell them. Even the six-year-old boys in her moviemaking class are too ADD to focus on her for more than a second. Following a family announcement of her brother's betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of pansexual escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.

    what a horrible affectation.

    It is great to hear someone from Iran referring to themselves as Iranian, instead of Persian.  If an Italian called themselves Roman, they would get the response that 'Persians' should get when they do the same.

    I wish this movie came with a significant other that I could watch it with, but I'm going to suck it up and watch it anyway, because it looks amazing and great, and they will come (finger's crossed;)

    Can't wait to see this movie!!

    I'm honestly glad this movie exists. Usually films like these only star white people in their 20s, and I'm so happy that a WOC of Iranian descent is both directing AND starring as the main protagonist. This is like Girls except with better story and more diverse cast. Props to this movie, looking forward to seeing it :D

    "stop ruining my 20s" is that a joke that just doesn't work or are they serious? all the people in this film are surely pushing 40?
  • maayanchik1 2015-02-25 04:03:39
    Great movie! Go Electrelane!!
  • TedGoranson69 2015-02-22 01:20:33
    Oh, look, a film validating narcissism and being a self-righteous hipster. How audacious!

    Desiree Akhavan... i did not knew her...not a displeasure, she's got something more , it could be fun to see the movie I dedicate the excellent "Desiree" (1967) by The Left Banke... to miss Akhavan

    Something about her reminds me of Sandra Bernhard. Maybe the mouth, or the slight bass in her voice...
