An unexpected take on the last taboo.
Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Appropriate Behavior) cowrites, directs and stars in The Bisexual, a comedy-drama which offers an honest, funny take on bisexuality and the comic misconceptions surrounding it.
New Yorker Leila (Akhavan) goes on a ‘break’ from her long-term girlfriend and business partner Sadie (Maxine Peake). Moving out oftheir flat but still forced to see her ex every day at their joint tech company, Leila rents a room from neurotic once-successful novelist
Gabe (Brian Gleeson).
The Bisexual explores the differences between dating men and women from the perspective of Leila who finds herself – for the first time – doing both whilst examining the funny, painful, complexities of realising that the one you love, and the life you need, may
be two very different things.
Produced by Hootenanny - a Sister Pictures company - for Channel 4, UK and Hulu in the USA
