As her breakthrough film (along with her debut, ‘˜Creative Nonfiction) ‘˜Tiny Furniture’ makes its way to Criterion, we have our first look at the mumblecore star’s latest effort, a TV series entitled ‘˜Girls’ set to bow on HBO.
The show stars Dunham as a seemingly 20-something in the middle of New York, and all the shenanigans that come with it, so basically, imagine ‘˜Furniture,’ but weekly. Do with that description whatever you will.
Personally, as a huge fan of ‘˜Furniture’ and Dunham as a whole (her interview with Elvis Mitchell on The Treatment confirmed to me that she’s a far smarter and more interesting a filmmaker than one would imagine), and her brand of Whit Stillman-like comedy really shines here. She’s got a distinct style and sense of humor, and one that looks to bleed well over to the weekly television world.
