Tiny Furniture is about a 22 year-old recent college grad returning to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with a virtually useless degree and a dying hamster. The main character, Aura, played by a brilliant Lena Dunham, is a far cry from most of the actresses we see on the screen these days. But she delivers this part perfectly. She is beautiful, sexy, smart and funny, but still overshadowed by the successes of her mother and sister.
