In this tale of art imitating life, a liberal arts college girl is so distracted by the tortured pseudo-romance she’s carrying on with a dorm mate that elements of it begin to creep into her screenplay-in-process. A surreal, just-on-the-verge-of-hysteria tone permeates this Ohio-set romantic comedy, which explores the complexities of love and mistakes. Lena Dunham stars and also writes and directs while she, herself, is a coed.
A lot more experimental than Tiny Furniture, which I liked a lot. The relation between the silly screenplay and the "actual" events is very witty and ends at a moving note. I think I prefer this to Tiny Furniture but that might be because I'm in college right now.
