Passes with flying colors, early and often. This is a sometimes melancholy comedy about a bisexual woman, Shirin, trying to figure out what to do with her life. She has lengthy conversations with her girlfriend about their relationship, with her best friend about her girlfriend, with a lingerie-shop owner about her breasts, with another woman she tries to date, with yet another woman she has a one-night stand with, with her mother, and with a co-worker. They're all named characters. There are a handful of significant named men in the film, including men Shirin sleeps with or is related to, but this film is mostly about relationships between women. It's very reminiscent of <I>Francis Ha</I> or <I>Obvious Child</I> in terms of focusing on an immature grown-up trying to figure out how to be an adult.
