Worth Watching: Lena Dunham's Quirky 'Tiny Furniture' Trailer
Support independent films! Apple has debuted a trailer for an IFC Films indie film called Tiny Furniture that's written, directed and stars New York native Lena Dunham. It's a quirky little comedy of sorts about a college graduate who returns to live with her mom while figuring out what she's supposed to do with her life now. There's a little bit of romance, a little bit of comedy, a little bit of drama, it looks quite good, I must say. The film also received some rave reviews from critics at the numerous festivals its played at, so we know it's pretty good. Thought I'd give this upcoming indie a little bit of love today. Check out the trailer below!

About a recent college grad (Dunham) who returns home while trying to figure out what to do in her life.
Tiny Furniture is both written and directed by (and also stars) first-time feature filmmaker Lena Dunham, of a few shorts previously. Dunham grew up in SoHo in New York City, went to St. Ann's School in Brooklyn and graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in creative writing in 2008. This premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year and also played at the Los Angeles and Mill Valley Film Festivals. IFC Films will be bringing Tiny Furniture to very limited theaters starting on November 12th this fall. Interested?

I'm not an American nor an Israeli, but I always wonder why American movies always use some Hebrew words in them? i.e. "Shalom" or "schmuck" . is the Jewish culture big part of the American culture? or are they subliminal messages? or what exactly? P.S. I'm not trolling. The movie looks good by the way.

I'd check it out. I liked the last line when the mother asks if she loves living there. A completely honest and sarcastic answer that I found endearing and funny. Though it looks like it may be a little slow, I'd still check it out.

Finally some credit to the Chad name.. wait? Really, this looks like a film for all the people that live on the North Side of Chicago, or bucktown and are full of themselves... no dice.

Not bad. Seems very different and promising.

@Noah --- Americans tend to pick up elements from the various cultures which make it up. Remember that the USA is mostly made up of people who, to paraphrase Bill Murray in STRIPES, got kicked out of every other country in the world. As an example: I was born and raised in Texas. Depending on where you go and live in Texas, you can pick up a bit of Jewish culture, some Spanish, some German, some French, some east Asian . . . the whole nine yards.

#3, what Stetbos said, not to mention that the movie takes place in New York City, which has a HUGE population of Jewish people.
