Saturday October 11, 7:00 PM at the Harris Theater
(US; 2014; 90 min.)
Director: Desiree Akhavan
Writer, director and actress Desiree Akhavan taps into her own experiences growing up as an Iranian-American to craft this funny and bright film.
Akhavan portrays Shirin, a young woman who is struggling to become an ideal Persian daughter, and politically correct bisexual and hip young Brooklynite all at the same time — but fails miserably in her attempt at all identities.
The cast also includes comedian/actor Scott Adsit (TV’s “30 Rock”) and Pennsylvania native Aimee Mullins, who first became famous for her athletic accomplishments despite the amputation of both of her legs.
