READ MORE: Watch: Exclusive Trailer for ‘Farah Goes Bang’ Has Double Entendres to Spare
The first time is always an awkward and clumsy moment, so it seems Farah (Nikohl Boosheri) is just like the rest of us when it comes to taking this very big first step. In the exclusive clip from “Farah Goes Bang” above, the eponymous twentysomething can’t quite set the mood during one of her many attempts to lose her pesky virginity.
Directed and co-written Meera Menon, the film follows Farah and her two best friends, hotheaded KJ (Kandis Erickson) and political junkie Roopa (Kiran Deol), as they road trip across Ohio while campaigning door-to-door for John Kerry. While the crux of their journey is for politics, the three embark on the ultimate quest to kick Farah’s virginity to the curb. Michael Steger, Lyman Ward, Samrat Chakrabarti and Kate French also star.
The comedy-drama won the inaugural Nora Ephron Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2013. As Variety reported earlier this month, Menon will be following up the award-winning “Farah Goes Bang” with Broad Green Pictures’ female-driven Wall Street drama “Equity. “Farah Goes Bang” will be available on iTunes, Vimeo and other VOD platforms on April 10.
