Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

TINY FURNITURE, like the character Aura, drifts. On one hand, this is a well-made, artistic portrayal of a girl who doesn't know what to do with herself. Aura, and the rest of the cast, seem very real, very natural. Every day, there are real twentysomethings behaving exactly like this.

But while this makes Tiny Furniture spot-on filmmaking, it doesn't make it particularly interesting to watch. Aura is bored with her life because there isn't much going on. And the film, for exactly the same reasons, is tedious.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
