    How she (Dunham) made her movie is more impressive or at least unique than the actual story she chooses to tell. show more

    The complementary tone of droll but freighted psychodrama she strikes in Tiny Furniture feels like a significant but precarious achievement. I feel a pinch of worry for her - as I did for Aura - looking into a future of Rudins and Apatows. show more
