Watch GIRLS first because if you don’t like that then you’ll hate this twice as much
on 18 January 2016
No Spoilers. Lena Dunham’s debut and very much a prototype for her TV show GIRLS. Lena comes home to stay with her mum, has a difficult time adapting to no longer being in education, meets friends, struggles with relationships, screams, drinks, swears, funny but dark in places, great dialogue and yeah it’s a lot like GIRLS. Two Elephants in the room: Yes, it’s very Woody Allen but if he was from my generation and Yes why should we care about rich people with very first world problems? Don’t have an answer for that one, it just works, I don’t relate to having that much money and privilege but I relate to being a young adult, stressed and struggling to find their place in the world and that’s what Lena Dunham is all about. So many people will find it smug hipster pish but I don’t care, I love it, it has Jessa from GIRLS in it also whom I adore. I find it funny, charming and highly relatable. Watch GIRLS first because if you don’t like that then you’ll hate this twice as much.
