Written, directed by and starring Girls Lena Dunham, Tiny Furniture is a great example of what a small film can possibly lead to. For those of you who have seen Girls, the plotline of Tiny Furniture may be kind of familiar. Aura (Dunham) returns home after college to her artist mothers loft in Brooklyn. Directionless and adrift, Aura tries to figure out her life when she meets Jed (Alex Karpovsky), a semi-famous YouTube star who she invites to live in the loft with her mother and her sister (played by her real life mother and sister). With the simple setup, Aura has some awkward conversations and painful realizations about life. This was one of the films that helped push Dunham into the upper echelons of indie film making. Her story is very raw and she gets a lot out of her amateur actors. At times, it feels so real that the viewer cant help but wonder if this is a documentary, or at least a recreation of awkward family fights they've had in the past. Tiny Furniture is an excellent film for fans of Girls because it has the same feel and tone of Girls and features some cast members, including Karpovsky who plays Ray Ploshansky, and Jemima Kirke who plays Jessa Johansson.
