Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
22-year-old Aura (Dunham) 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. Surrounded on all sides by what she could become, Aura just wants someone to tell her who she is.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Dunham definitely has a knack for shaping a comic scene, but Aura is so culturally and financially privileged that her woes begin to seem as trivial as the miniatures her mother uses in her artwork.
Fresh: There's a fierce, self-lacerating wit on display in Lena Dunham's tiny indie Tiny Furniture: as big and bold as the production is modest and (literally) homemade.
Fresh: It's one of the loveliest lowest-budget features to come down the pike.
Fresh: Sharp observations, thin on entertainment value -- "Mumblecore" at its heart.
I almost couldn't finish
This movie is just plain boring... the characters are obnoxious and the story line is pointless. Just not a movie that i could recommend to anyone.
Innovative, introspective film about the difficulties of coping with post graduate life whilst dealing with acceptance and your new place in society. Lovely, refreshing, and heartbreaking simultaneously. Kudos to Lena for writing and starring in this bravely imagined yet brutally honest piece.
lucky i cant give you a negative star rating
