Akhavan is pulling off a hat trick for her first film; acting as writer, director, and actor.
The film will be competing in the NEXT category. "Pure, bold works distinguished by an innovative, forward-thinking approach to storytelling" are included in this program.
Many of Shirin's experiences in the film were drawn from Akhavan's own life.
The film was inspired by her own popular web series, The Slope.
There will be sex scenes that are actually relatable — landing somewhere between painfully awkward and unbelievably perfect.
The cast is a wonderful mix of both familiar and new faces.
Yes, that is Scott Adsit from the likes of 30 Rock, but you're going to love meeting the rest of the cast, including Halley Feiffer and Rebecca Henderson, just as much.
