The spotlight is very much on actor-writer-director Lena Dunham at the moment: after her directorial debut ‘Tiny Furniture’ won widespread plaudits on its US release last year, she’s been snapped up by HBO to create an upcoming TV series, ‘Girls’, with producer Judd Apatow. Somehow, she also found time to co-write ‘Nobody Walks’ with director Ty Russo-Young, whose earlier features ‘Orphans’ and ‘You Won’t Miss Me’ fit firmly within the currently fashionable hipster-friendly US indie template. ‘Nobody Walks’ follows the exploits of 23-year-old Martine (Olivia Thirlby), a sexually overactive New Yorker who arrives in LA to put the finishing touches to her latest experimental film project. Tasked with helping her out, happily married sound mixer Peter (John Krasinski) finds himself falling for the younger woman’s charms. Also starring Dylan McDermott, Rosemarie DeWitt and Justin Kirk, ‘Nobody Walks’ looks like textbook Sundance fare – which is no bad thing. ‘Nobody Walks’ is one of 14 films to screen at the inaugural Sundance London event in April 2012.
