Film School Rejects

As Aura is unable to see past the immediate moment, the plot is structured in a way that provides no foreseeable linear direction to an inevitable destination.

Film Comment Magazine

an interpersonal chamber-piece that succeeds as well as it does thanks to the unabashed intimacy it has with its own diminutive subject matter. Call it a mumblecore mumblepiece.

Eye for Film

It is Dunham's fearlessness in showing Aura warts and all that becomes endearing.

Speaks to anyone 'waiting' for their opportunity in life, sardonically pointing out the obstacles in the way in a glib but na´ve manner.

It's best enjoyed, like Aura's life, as a work in progress, promisingly tangy and archly amusing.

It's clever, funny and never smug as Dunham pokes fun at herself and the pseuds around her.

Smartly observed and bitterly funny, the deadpan Tiny Furniture feels true to life for an entire generation struggling to find a job and make their mark on the world.

Lena Dunham demonstrates a keen eye for detail, a sharp ear for dialogue and a nice line in deadpan playing in this, her debut feature.

Dunham's critics are circling but this is well-written and funny.

Financial Times

Dunham's on-screen mixture - essentially all the S's (sadness, structurelessness, serendipity) - is stirred so skilfully it makes recent indie cinema of extemporisation, from mumblecore to Miranda Otto, seem like am-dram.

Little White Lies

A painfully authentic anti-coming-of-ager.

A superbly written character study with a terrific, vanity-free performance from Lena Dunham that makes us warm to her character even as we recognise her more obnoxious traits.

The Skinny

Tiny Furniture has been crafted in minute detail by a young filmmaker clearly bursting with ideas, quite the opposite of the film's main protagonist.

A deft self-portrait of someone who hasn't reached the point where they can take themselves seriously.

Much-maligned it may be, but the so-called mumblecore movement continues to turn out gems.

It's got bags of baggy charm, and some brilliantly observed scenes.

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...

succeeds admirably in its relatively scaled ambition to evoke the discomfort of a particular time in one's life while also jabbing playfully at the pretensions of the insular Soho art scene
