Tiny Furniture review

A road to discover what to do with your life when college is over.

Lena Dunahm was 23 when she wrote, directed and starred in this arch, semi-autobiographical tale of a college graduate who returns home to figure out her next move.

Cue slummy days, run-ins with her artist mum and poet sister (played by Dunham’s real-life artist mum and poet sister) and shoddy sex with a douchebag.

Playing like a mumblecore The Graduate set in the affected milieu of the Tribeca art crowd, Tiny Furniture announces Dunham as a talent to watch: she’s in Judd Apatow’s This Is 40 and HBO’s Girls, a show she’s also written and directed.
