Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham’s career took off at the 2010 South By Southwest Film Festival, where her debut film as a writer, director, and actress, ‘Tiny Furniture,’ won the Best Narrative Feature award and garnered the attention of Hollywood. Judd Apatow was a fan, and offered to partner with her on an HBO series. The results, ‘Girls,’ became one of the channel’s most popular comedy series. Four seasons of the Brooklyn-set show have already aired and a fifth is on its way. In 2014, Dunham published her first book, a collection of essays titled ‘Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s ‘Learned.’’

‘Girls’ Season 5 Set Photos Capture Lucy Liu and More
HBO’s Girls rarely telegraphs what to expect with each coming year, but with Season 5 already in production in New York, the first set photos have yielded some surprising turns. Elementary star Lucy Liu (and possibly Jonny Lee Miller?) will guest star in the new Girls season, as Adam seemingl…
‘Girls’ Season Finale Review: ‘Home Birth’
Of every Girls season finale, “Home Birth” feels the most final — major changes and life plans happen in the blink of an eye; new lives enter this world and familiar faces fade; and perhaps what makes this episode feel so final is the “six months later” coda, which…
‘Girls’ Review: ‘Daddy Issues’
There are certain things we learn how to do as we become more adult: we learn what to share and what not to share and when to share it, and we learn how to fake smiling and being supportive to our friends and loved ones even when it kills us. There are good boundaries and bad boundaries, just as the…
‘Girls’ Review: ‘Tad and Loreen and Avi and Shanaz’
Tonight’s episode of Girls is a lot to take in, with a long title to match. “Tad and Loreen and Avi and Shanaz” offers up some real anxiety-inducing bombshells, and although these moments punctuate the half-hour with shock and awe, it’s the dialogue exchanges between vari…
‘Girls’ Review: ‘Ask Me My Name’
Manipulation, resentment and deceit are the central conceits at the heart of this week’s Girls. Hannah attempts to be friends with Adam, and this overture is both genuine and disingenuous at the same time, highlighting the conflicting emotions that go into such well-meaning and painful post-b…
‘Girls’ Review: “Close Up”
Over the course of the last few seasons, the twentysomething girls of Girls have hardly changed at all, which makes them more empathetic, if a little frustrating — but only because, if you’ve ever been in your early 20s, you can see some of yourself in each of them. If insanity is repe…
‘Girls’ Review: “Sit-In”
At one point during this week’s episode of Girls, Hannah off-handedly describes the only way to solve a Rubik’s Cube: by taking the stickers off and re-sticking them in the proper arrangement. It’s such a casual comment, but one that easily defines the way Hannah — and he…
‘Girls’ Review: “Cubbies”
“How do you know if you’ve made the right decision?” That’s the question at the heart of this week’s ‘Girls,’ which sees Hannah struggling to figure out if she belongs in Iowa, while Shoshanna has a hard time finding the perfect job back in New York. …
