Lena Dunham Channels Wes Anderson in New Short Film

Lena Dunham Channels Wes Anderson in New Short Film

Mar 26, 2013

In the season finale of Girls, we saw these words typed on Hannah's (Lena Dunham) computer: "A friendship between college girls is grander and more dramatic than any romance." A new video from the series' creator, showcasing the fall 2013 Rachel Antonoff collection, emphasizes a similar point in a Wes Anderson-esque study about best friends.

We could assume the young women in the video are college age, but it's safe to say that Hannah's words speak to many close relationships no matter the gender. Still, there is something unique about best girl pals. The three-minute clip is narrated by Girls star Adam Driver — Adam Sackler on the show — who sports a fake, announcer-style British accent. We had no idea it was the actor until the credits rolled.

As expected, this isn't your typical video fashion look-book. There's plenty of Dunham's trademark awkwardness on display, and the bits of dialogue sprinkled throughout feel like conversations Girls characters might have. If you're not a fan of the show, or Dunham's fantastic film Tiny Furniture, (or Wes Anderson's humor, for that matter) this may elude you. We think it's a hilarious slice of best-friend life, magnified.
