Tiny Furniture Movie Review
Lena Dunham burst onto the scene with the underappreciated Tiny Furniture, a drama about a recent college grad named Aura who struggles with her next step in life. She moves in with her mother, gets a job as a hostess and starts dating two men, neither of whom are very interesting.
Dunham, who now stars in the HBO series "Girls", which she also created, turns in a fine performance as Aura. As far as understated quirky dramas go, Tiny Furniture is relatively interesting, though far from spellbinding.
Nevertheless, the movie should be seen from a broader perspective: it's the beginning of what should be a very long and intriguing career from the up-and-coming filmmaker.
