IFC Films has released a movie trailer for Lena Dunham‘s Tiny Furniture, a mumblecore comedy about “a recent college grad who returns home while she tries to figure out what to do with her life.” The film, written/directed and starring Dunham premiered at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival to mixed reviews, but she caught the eye of the right people — HBO have greenlit a coming-of-age pilot written by 24-year-old Dunham and produced by Judd Apatow. Watch the trailer for Tiny Furniture after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Official Plot Synopsis:
22-year-old Aura returns home to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her Youtube page, a boyfriend who’s left her to find himself at Burning Man, a dying hamster, and her tail between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. Aura quickly throws away her liberal-arts clogs and careens into her old/new life: a dead-end hostess job, parties on chilly East Village fire escapes, stealing twenties out of her mother’s Prada purse, pathetic Brooklyn “art shows,” prison-style tattoos done out of sheer boredom, drinking all the wine in her mother’s neatly organized cabinets, competing with her prodigious teenage sister, and desperate sex in a giant metal pipe. Surrounded on all sides by what she could become, Aura just wants someone to tell her who she is.
Tiny Furniture hits limited theaters on November 12th 2010.
