Tiny Furniture Reviews
Certain moments of this film really spoke to me. But as the film progressed, I hated Aura more and more. Maybe Dunham wants everyone to hate her (like she does in Girls), but I'm not interested in hating someone for the sake of hating them? Towards the end it just got more and more painful to watch (I was holding my hair, begging for it to end).
There is no way I would ever recommend this to anyone... in fact, I'm a little embarrassed I sat through it...
ON THE OTHER HAND, it showed an honesty exposing the faults some of us have in a way I could probably never capture in my own work. For being able to recognize and understand your self-hating characteristics, I say Bravo.
The film was shot on the Canon EOS 7D. Filming took place in TriBeCa and Lower Manhattan. The film was shot in November 2009. Dunham says she wrote a "tight script" to which the actors were faithful.
The soundtrack included music by Teddy Blanks of The Gaskets, Domino (Domino Kirke, and Jordan Galland), Rebecca Schiffman and Sonia's Party! & The Everyone's Invited Band. The soundtrack is downloadable for free on the movie website.
Tiny Furniture was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2012 as part of the Criterion Collection
Lena Dunham won for Best First Screenplay at the 2010 Independent Spirit Awards
I think that this is such a really well written/acted/directed movie 2 watch.....
It premiered at South by Southwest, where it won Best Narrative Feature, screened at such festivals as Maryland Film Festival, and was released theatrically in the United States on November 12, 2010. Dunham's own mother, the artist Laurie Simmons, plays Aura's mother, while her real sister, Grace, plays Aura's on-screen sibling. The actors Jemima Kirke and Alex Karpovsky would also appear in Dunham's television series Girls.

I didnt hate it, but I found myself wondering who financed this film. A quiet female comedy with quirky characters & not much of a plot, yet Lena Dunham was unusually charismatic on screen. Her deadpan delivery was very sincere & intriguing. AND Im glad she kept her clothes on during the entire movie lol.
Enjoyed Jemima Kirkes character as well (she reminded me a bit of Kelly Osbourne.) Also starred Lenas real life mom & sister.
