I remember reading an extensive and praiseworthy article about this film a few years ago; they spoke of a young girl named Lena Dunham, with a larger-than-life gift of writing, directing and acting from New York. She had just graduated with her Bachelor's in Creative Writing from a University in Ohio and after making web-series and short films, her film career was born, and in very fortunate standings.
This 2010 film was nominated for 4 awards and received 3 wins, it also opened the doors for a hit television series which is still airing called 'Girls'. With strong references to Woody Allen, Dunham does have his film style with simplicity yet profound and sometimes exhausting heavy conversations. Reminicent of 'The Graduate' with a female and modern-day twist. I found myself laughing throughout the film and although there was an abrupt ending and no inherent insightful message, it was plain entertaining and shone light on the confusions and mishaps of what it means to grow up and learn responsibilities. It was strange, silly, embarrassing and very, very funny.
In this film in particular, acting was a breeze as the main characters Dunham played alongside were her mother Laurie Simmons and younger sister Grace Dunham. Others that joined in the fun have become main characters in her hit television series like English, Jemima Kirke, Merritt Wever and Alex Karpovsky.
