Sundance Review: 'Appropriate Behavior' a Coming-Out Tale of Deadpan Comedy and Melancholy

In a scene halfway through Desiree Akhavan’s NEXT entry “Appropriate Behavior,” Shirin (played by Akhavan) finds herself nudged out of a threesome. As she watches her menage-a-trois partners get along without her, it becomes clear that Shirin is a young woman who hasn’t yet found a place to fit in, both in the sexual escapade unfolding before her, and in life.
