About Tiny Furniture

Winner of the best narrative feature at the SXSW Film Festival, TINY FURNITURE is a hilarious and endearing film that explores the depths of romantic humiliation and the heights of post-college confusion. Writer/director/star Lena Dunham is being called one of the most exciting new voices in American independent cinema and critics are hailing her film as “irresistibly funny”, “unnervingly honest”, and “near perfection”. TINY FURNITURE also stars Dunham's real-life sister, Grace, and real-life mother, Laurie Simmons, the celebrated artist and photographer.

22-year-old Aura (Dunham) returns home to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her Youtube page, a boyfriend who’s left her to find himself at Burning Man, a dying hamster, and her tail between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. Surrounded on all sides by what she could become, Aura just wants someone to tell her who she is.


Alexis Swerdloff, Paper Magazine
"Irresistibly funny."
Steve Dollar, The Wall St Journal
"Unnervingly honest"
A.M. Homes, Vanity Fair
"A Rich, multi-faceted work...carried by Lena Dunham's sharp dialogue and terrific ability to simultaneously embarrass and endear us to her—but it’s also laced with a much darker story of exploitation, self-loathing, neediness, and intrafamilial resentment."
Miranda Siegel, New York Magazine
"Anyone looking for insight into the emotional lives of a certain sliver of today's young people — Generation TMI — should see this acclaimed second feature from 24-year-old Lena Dunham. The filmmaker stars (and casts her own mother and sister in supporting roles) in this comedic portrait of a recent college grad's search for what comes next, capturing the ennui of fading youth."
Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
