Since premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, "Appropriate Behavior" has been making its way through the festival circuit. Now, Gravitas Ventures has picked up the film, which is written, directed and starring Desiree Akhavan, for distribution (courtesy of Variety).
The film stars Akhavan as a quirky Park Slope resident in her 20s navigating through a breakup, her traditional Iranian family and her sexuality. The film, which won the Grand Jury Award for a U.S. dramatic feature at Outfest also marks Akhavan's debut. She will appear late this year in a guest stint on the upcoming season of HBO's "Girls."
"Appropriate Behavior" will open in theaters and will be available on VOD early next year.
