Reel Connections Film Festival – Appropriate Behaviour
28 Oct 2014 | Tuesday 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Presented by BEMAC, Reel Connections Film Festival showcases a collection of topical films from selected participating G20 nations with nine evenings of world cinema in the three weeks leading up to the Leader’s Summit.
Shirin is struggling to become an ideal Persian daughter, a politically correct bisexual and hip young Brooklynite but she’s not quite Persian enough, not quite gay enough, not quite anything enough. She fails miserably in her attempt at all identities, and without a cliché to hold onto, it can be a lonely experience.
After being dumped by her girlfriend Maxine, Shirin faces an unimaginable task; searching the idyllic lesbian haven of Park Slope for a shared artist’s loft in Bushwick. Unable to let go of the memories of their excruciating highs and lows, the endearingly superficial narcissist finds herself plotting to win back her ex.
