Tiny furniture, tiny plot...

Sometimes painful to watch. Spoiled brat sisters exploit and dump on friends and family, while letting higher status peers exploit and make fools of them. A better post-graduate drama is Frances Ha

This is the very first thing I've ever seen by Lena Dunham. A couple flashes of brilliance and a lot of...not so much.

Lena Dunham wrote, directs and stars in this movie about a girl who comes home from college to live with her mother and sister. The movie was filmed in her mother's apartment and, you guessed it, her mother and sister play the said roles. That's probably the most interesting aspect of this film. I felt I was watching a very well made student film. Dunham has some of the comic manic qualities of Woody Allen and those moments I enjoyed. You also see where the eventual show 'Girls' gets it's basis from. But she can't seem to get any narrative thrust going nor can she wrap up the story to any satisfying conclusion. What was the ending anyhow? It ended rather abruptly after a dull last act to the movie. I feel she's very talented and I am happy for her success but I don't feel she's done her best work yet.

This had a similar feel (and many of the same actors) as Girls. Pretty much like a long, drawn out episode that was marginally less exciting. I didn't hate it, but wouldn't recommend it unless Girls is right up your alley.

Myopic drivel. I'm surprised at Criterion for releasing it, I expect better from them. A complete waste of time. They compare her with Woody Allen?! In whose dreams?

Prequel to HBO's Girls? Very similar story lines.

I liked this movie a lot. An amazingly assured work for such a young director. Interesting characters, unselfconsciously played. A window into the lives of twenty-somethings in the new century.
