Is it weird to be proud of someone you don’t know? I feel proud for Lena Dunham for getting Girls on HBO. I don’t care about all the nitpicky discussions on whether the show is too white, too privledged, or unrealistic. Too me, it doesn’t matter, its television and it makes me happy that a smart girl in her twenties can pitch an interesting show and get it on air. I feel happy for her. If you like the show, watch Tiny Furniture. It’s her first feature film and it’s almost a precursor to Girls. I’m really impressed by the photo-like compositions and the acting by her real mom and sister. She also shot the entire things on a canon slr which goes to show, if you have a great idea, you don’t need much to make a good film.
