Olive Goil: Lena Dunham


My dears, Miss Lena Dunham is a force to be reckoned with, am I right?

With her hit film Tiny Furniture, she showed a side of us gals that had not been revealed before on film, -creating a raw, witty, and unabashed look at what it’s like to be a woman.

And now, with her hit HBO series “Girls” Dunham has done the same, bringing to television a no-nonsense, no holds barred exploration of ladies trying their best in the big city.  The show is funny, goofy, and most of all, bracingly honest. Even if “Girls” is exactly not your cup of tea, it’s very hard to argue with the wonderful intelligence of the dialogue and biting awareness in the writing and performance.

I am a die-hard flapper/ feminist, as you all know. I like to dance and I like to shout out loud praises, to strong women, round the world.  So it only goes to say, I am utterly thrilled that a young women like Dunham, (she just 26!) is making her way, paving the road, and kicking down doors in film and TV.

The latter being still a bit of a “no woman’s” land, don’t you agree?

That said, my sweet readers, I feel it is my duty to continually introduce all of you fine folks, to gals like Miss D, who make the rest of our lives that much better through their smarts and talent.

Kudos to Miss Dunham and her cast-mates and crew for running such a tight and wonderfully whimsical ship!
