In the twelfth and latest project from prolific mumblecore Godfather Joe Swanberg, Girls writer-director-producer Lena Dunham cedes control and steps fully in front of the camera – for a moment at least. Dunham plays a college pal of Jenny (Anna Kendrick), a woman who just broke up with her boyfriend and moves in with her sister and brother-in-law just before Christmas. Jenny drinks and smokes pot to deal with the situation. And if there's anyone we can count on to capture the verisimilitude of family-induced holiday binging, it's Swanberg.
