Zoe Kazan and Lena Dunham put a 21st century hipster spin on the classic looks pioneered by starlets Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich in Dunham’s latest creative endeavor, a short film called “Voting Audrey.”
The film premiered on the YouTube channel for the retail company “& Other Stories” and features styles from a new collection that will debut on the & Other Stories website on May 12.
Kazan stars as a young woman running for public office, in the midst of canvasing a neighborhood for votes. After knocking on countless doors and being rejected every single time, Kazan’s character launches into a bizarre fantasy sequence in which she has become President. Awkward press interviews and dance sequences ensue, set to the tune of Chantal Claret’s “Let Me See The Devil.”
From an ideological standpoint, the premise of the video doesn’t make much sense — but it sure is fun to watch. You have to pick and choose your battles.
