    "I went on this journey as a person who depends greatly on the Internet and technology as a big part of my life.

    Sundance Review: 'Appropriate Behavior' Is A Funny, Irreverent, & Unique Take On The New York Rom-Com

    The feature debut of Desiree Akhavan, “Appropriate Behavior,” opens with the writer/director/star casually carrying a strap-on dildo down a Brooklyn street.
