Tiny Furniture

Lena Dunham is a triple threat. As the writer, director and star of Tiny Furniture Dunham basically gets to make her cake and eat it too.

In Tiny Furniture we observe the frustration as well as the joy of a college student returning home with a degree to her mom’s home in trendy Tribeca. On a side note, remember that New York City is an expensive place to live and most kids live with their parents forever rather than spend a cumulative million on rent. Natch, Dunham’s surprised to find her old room now occupied by a friend/tenant. Dunham’s been dumped by one boyfriend and on her first new date gets stood up. When mom goes out of town for a few days Dunham lets this guy (who’s just visiting Gotham) crash at her (her mom’s) pad. Confusion ensues not just because they drink all of mom’s expensive wine but because said guy doesn’t really seem interested in Dunham the way she’s interested in him.

Dunham’s not an ugly ducking nor is she a glamour puss and thus the eccentric charm of Tiny Furniture. We’re not so much navel gazing as reinventing Georgie Girl for the new millennium. Tiny Furniture plays exclusively this weekend at the Museum of Fine Arts.
