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.
