Lena Dunham directed this new four-minute fashion film for Rachel Antonoff, in which Zoe Kazan stars as Audrey, a young woman with dreams of the presidency.
When Audrey is dressed down by a neighbor to whom she had hope to explain her platform, Dunham enlists a bit of magical realism and lets Audrey's imagination take the reins, as we see what her version of the presidency might be. Oh, and since this is an ad, after all, Audrey dons Rachel Antonoff's new collection & Other Stories.
While the spot is a bit '90s girl power, leaning on a lighthearted, easy-going tone, as Jezebel notes, it is rather fun and charming. And Dunham herself used promoting her film as another opportunity to make her opinions about 2016's candidates clear.
Soon, this film won't be total fiction. MADAM PRESIDENT 2016 http://t.co/dkylNORbKY
