Look out Lena Dunham, here comes mom!


Laurie Simmons is set to direct a movie with a ‘small role’ for the creator of Girls[…]

“Simmons was immediately “fascinated” and “disturbed” by this life-size, life-like body that “could be bought and arrived packaged in a box, a woman/girl entering your home as a commodity ready to be used and fetishised.
