Compromise. It's something that, as you get older, you learn to navigate with the pragmatism of being an adult. But when you're younger, it can be difficult to understand and exercise. In "Free Snacks," it finds Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) all trading off grander aspirations for what they can realistically acquire at the moment, though it will be met with difficulty, pain or just cold indifference.

First, it was Alex Karpovsky and Jemima Kirke who transitioned from “Tiny Furniture” to “Girls.” And now, in a new short fashion video that Dunham directed for designer Rachel Antonoff, her onscreen lover Adam Driver of “Girls” narrates, while her sister Grace Dunham of “Tiny Furniture” stars alongside New York Times writer Alice Gregory.
