July 21 – Tiny Furniture, 2010
98 minutes

“Why do I feel such affection for Tiny Furniture? It’s a well-crafted film, for one thing. . . . It shows a command of style and purpose; Dunham knows what she wants and how she needs to get it, and succeeds. Her character Aura is not charismatic or glowing or mercurial or seductive or any of those advertising adjectives, but she believes she deserves to be happy, and we do, too.” Roger Ebert
