Tiny Furniture by Lena Dunham (2010, 98 min.). Aura (Dunham) returns to her mom’s (Dunham’s real life mother Laurie Simmons) TriBeCa loft after college with a few suitcases, 357 YouTube hits, and a film theory degree. As she tries to figure what she wants, Aura works as a hostess at a restaurant, competes with her precocious sister Nadine (Dunham’s real life sister Grace), engages in worthless romances, and drinks all of her mother’s wine. Tiny Furniture explores the depths of romantic humiliation and the heights of post-college confusion with Dunham’s amazingly true-to-life dialogue. “Dunham is a big talent to be reckoned with, a storyteller of gigantic charm and subtlety, and a filmmaker of exciting feminine originality” (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly).
