“I love Whit Stillman,” Dunham tells me. “I love his work so much, but it’s—it’s rarefied in a way I don’t want to be. It’s so specific.” Woody Allen made that leap, she pointed out: The country saw themselves in him. “I love Noah Baumbach. I love Nicole Holofcener. I love James L. Brooks. I’m crazy about Mike Leigh: Career Girls!”
This lady! I love how Lena Dunham and I pretty much have the same taste in film - and that I like her movies. Hence why I cried a lonely tear when I saw she'd arranged this series at BAM (one of my fave cinemas in NYC) called Hey Girlfriend! and that I won't be there for the Chris Eigman and Whit Stillman chat. Pretty much going to move to BK later this year to make sure this never happens again.
