The breakout film Tiny Furniture by one of America’s youngest female talents, 25-year director-writer-actor Lena Dunham, gets a home entertainment release in the UK on 28 May and we've got three copies to give away!
Already enjoying cult status in the US and securing Dunham her own HBO television series (Girls), Tiny Furniture will be released on DVD and VOD by Independent Distribution, following its nationwide theatrical release in March 2012.
The knockout existential comedy follows Aura (played by Dunham) as she returns home from university to her mother's Manhattan loft with: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her YouTube page, a boyfriend who's left her to find himself, a dying hamster and her tail between her legs. Aura quickly careens into her old/new life taking us on a wildly imaginative ride through romantic humiliation and post-university confusion. Lena Dunham wrote, directed and stars in Tiny Furniture, which was shot in Dunham's real-life family home, starring Dunham's mother (renowned photographer Laurie Simmons) and her sister Grace Dunham as Nadine.
Tiny Furniture celebrated its world premiere at the 2010 South-by-Southwest Film Festival, where it won the Jury Award for “Best Narrative Feature” and Dunham took home the festival’s breakout award for emerging narrative woman director. The film has garnered Dunham comparisons to the likes of filmmaker Miranda July and comedian Tina Fey, as well as the hit series Seinfeld. She has been hailed as “the Woody Allen of Generation Y“ (Screen International) and the “future of screen comedy” (Total Film).
Additional bonus material on the DVD includes an interview with Lena Dunham by filmmaker and writer Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally); Four short films by Lena Dunham; and the theatrical trailer.
