I have become a fan of Lena Dunham's HBO series, Girls, so I was interested to see her debut feature, Tiny Furniture (2010). It was this film that allowed her to get the HBO deal. In order to keep costs down (she made the film for $65,000) she used her real-life mother, artist Lauries Simmons and sister Grace Dunham, as actors. Dunham herslef, like her show Girls, also stars in the film. Anyone who watches Girls will also recognize future regulars Alex Kapovsky and Jemima Kirke. It is a very mature first film and shows her gifts for humor, character, and comedy. It also has many scenes of her Rubinesque-body without pants, half naked throughout-something that she continues to do in Girls. It's an entertaining and impressive debut.
