I have not loved a movie this much in I don't know how long. Maybe it is because our life is currently awash in young people who are living through a lot of the same issues as the characters in this movie; looking for work with out any real work experience in the great recession, frustrated hopes for romance, female body image, and desire for real intimacy in a youtube world.
The filmmaker and main character Lena Dunham (ala Woody Allen), actually used her real sister and mother as - her sister and mother in her movie and shot it in their real home in Tribeca NY. There is a lot of realness for me in this movie including Dunham physical presence which is not anything close to typical kind of women we are accustomed to seeing in the movies. I do not have words for how refreshing this is to see a film populated by people that look like us.
