Sadly, I was not fortunate enough to attend this year's SXSW Film Festival, and therefore was unable to see what looks to be a great film and sleeper hit, TINY FURNITURE.  

Our wonderful Ronnie reviewed it back in March and spoke very highly of it, giving it a rating of 9/10. More great news came when IFC picked up the rights of the film for distribution. Written and directed by Lena Dunham, produced by Kyle Martin and Alicia Van Couvering, the films also stars Lena Dunham, her real-life mother and sister Laurie Simmons and Grace Dunham, as well as Alex Karpovsky, and David Call. Check out the trailer after the break.

You can see the trailer in its highest quality over at Apple Trailers.  

TINY FURNITURE won the SSW award for Best Narrative Feature, and from the trailer, rightly so. You can clearly hear the subtlety of so much of the humor in the trailer. And no doubt the film, centering around Dunham being a recent graduate, will strike a chord in many others who view it.

The synopsis goes as follows: "Aura (Lena Dunham) is a 22 year old retuning home from graduating with a film theory degree, single recently dumped, and no hopes for her future. Living with her successful artist mother, she meets back up with her old childhood best friend, who never left home. She takes on a hostess job at a local restaurant, and befriends someone who needs a place to live and obviously one who her mother does not want living with them. All the while trying to figure out who she is."

To be honest, I cannot wait to see this film, and we do not have much longer to wait, as the film will have a limited release on November 12.
