Mumblecore

Genre of movies "focused on the self-absorbed minutiae of post-collegiate existence," which includes the newly released Hannah Takes the Stairs.

It's officially a genre! Mumblecore is like the FUBU of the indie slacker generation with less emblazoned streetwear, more cardigans. You'll laugh, you'll cry, but most of all, you'll cringe - the characters portrayed in these movies might hit a little too close to home.

Editorial note: Whoa! You've found a super-old post here on BuzzFeed, from an earlier era of the site. It doesn't really represent where we are anymore, and may in fact be totally broken, but we're leaving it up as a part of our early history.
