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.

This film is actually quite good. The characters are well acted and realistic. Everyones a bit awkward and sometimes an asshole. Super funny in a dry sarcastic way.

Seems to be a genre: low budget, set in NYC, twenty-somethings still partially dependent on their wealthy parents trying to find a niche while mumbling clever dialogue at each other. Nobody's judgmental and anything goes, except it doesn't. What distinguishes this film from "Frances Ha," "In a World," etc, is lots of steamy sex, both lesbian and straight.

A fine film, kind of coming-into-adulthood and quite bittersweet with some delish comedic writing and timing.
Spot-on capture of certain New York personality types. Very high production values, well-directed, written, edited, and acted. I much enjoyed this.
