Every Saturday afternoon, join fellow film aficionados of the Village for an in-depth discussion of films new and old, led by Village member Mel Washburn. Watch the selected film any time–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after!
This week’s film is Appropriate Behavior (2014). From Wikipedia: “Appropriate Behavior is a British-produced comedy film set in New York City, which premiered on 18 January 2014 at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Written and directed by Desiree Akhavan, the film—Akhavan’s feature directorial debut—stars Akhavan as Shirin, a bisexual Persian American woman in Brooklyn struggling to rebuild her life after breaking up with her girlfriend Maxine (Rebecca Henderson). …
Brooklynite Shirin, the daughter of well-off Persian immigrants, is left homeless and jobless after her girlfriend breaks up with her. With the encouragement of her friend Crystal she moves in with strange roommates and gets a new job teaching 5 year old Park Slope children the art of movie making.”
If you choose to watch the movie before the discussion, it is available on Amazon Prime (free with subscription, rent or buy from $2.99), or Tubi (free with ads).
