A Rich, multi-faceted work...carried by Lena Dunham's sharp dialogue and terrific ability to simultaneously embarrass and endear us to her.

Winner of the best narrative feature at the SXSW Film Festival and writer/director/star Lena Dunham’s (Girls) breakout work, TINY FURNITURE is a hilarious and endearing film that explores the depths of romantic humiliation and the heights of post-college confusion. 22-year-old Aura (Dunham) returns home to her artist mother’s (Dunham’s real-life mom artist Laurie Simmons) 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.
