The Bisexual: Episodes 1 & 2
Dir. Desiree Akhavan, UK/USA, 2018, 65 mins (2 episodes)
Fresh from winning the Grand Jury prize at Sundance, Desiree Akhavan (THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST, APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR) co-writes, directs and stars in this witty new six-part comedy-drama produced by Hootenanny (A Sister Pictures company) for Hulu. BAFTA-nominated Maxine Peake (THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING) and Brian Gleeson (PHANTOM THREAD) also star in this painfully funny series that explores the differences between dating men and women from the perspective of Leila – who finds herself, for the first time, doing both. Coming to Hulu this November.
Talkback with Desiree Akhavan and Brian Gleeson to follow, moderated by Jane Mulkerrins (The Guardian, The Telegraph)
