Hurrah for Lena Dunham!
We were delighted, stoked and down-right proud to hear this morning that F.O.P. (Friend of PAPERMAG) Lena Dunham's wonderful feature film Tiny Furniture took home the narrative jury prize at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival! The movie, written and directed by Dunham, also stars Dunham as a 22-year-old recent college grad named Aura who moves home to her mom's loft in Tribeca where she struggles with being direction-less, boyfriend-less and occasionally pants-less. It's a subtle and hilarious take on being young and weird in New York. "This is a movie about a girl with a pot belly, whining," Dunham said at the award ceremony, "So I am amazed and happy that the jury took to it." Here, here!
