This film really reminds me of the notion that I would never want to be young again. I would never want to be in my teens or even my twenties and go through all the transitions that come with that time period. This film is written, directed and stared in by Lena Dunham. This low budget coming of age story is a retrospective look of the life of a post graduate woman, who is really a little girl, returning to her mothers Soho apartment and refusing to grow up. The film is cast with Lena's own mother, sister and friends. Her mother is artist Laurie Simmons and the loft in the film is really her mothers loft.
The film won the Best First Screenplay award at the 2010 Independent Spirit Awards.
I oscillated between wanting to smack her, thanking my lucky stars I don't have a daughter and cringing at the admission that I was not much different, in many ways, at that age.
