Welcome back to 'Girls' Talk, where we here at ScreenCrush are joined each week by critics to discuss the latest episode. In this week's outing, the ladies head to the beach for a "healing weekend" (Marnie's words), but when they encounter an old friend and no one wants to adhere to Marnie's tight schedule, tensions quickly mount and it's not long before a weekend of healing becomes one of picking (or stabbing) at wounds.

Tonight's all-new episode of 'Girls' takes our girls for a trip to the beach, but the weekend isn't all fun and relaxation: with Marnie struggling to maintain control over a carefully organized "healing" vacation and the reappearance of an old friend, it's not long before tensions mount. "Beach House" is an exceptional episode that finds these four friends picking at wounds rather than healing them.

With Hannah intensely narrowing her focus on herself and Adam and Caroline's fighting reaching a climax, it's not long before things start to implode.

'Happy Christmas' Review

There's a moment in 'Happy Christmas' when Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey and Lena Dunham have a few cocktails in a basement converted to a tiki bar, and that moment quietly strikes gold. The scene – three woman jawing about the balance of work and life – doesn't gear up to be some big emotional breakthrough. It just happens au naturale, unladen with political pamphleteering or, quite frankly, even looking for any solutions. It is a great microcosm of Joe Swanberg's newest film. Insight does occasionally spring from this movie in what looks like an effortless fashion, but the movie as a whole looks like hardly any effort went into it.
