SPOTLIGHT

LOLA VERSUS

Directed by Daryl Wein
FEATURE NARRATIVE 89 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE LOLA VERSUS
Indie ingénue Greta Gerwig stars as Lola, a New Yorker on the verge of 30 who finds herself abruptly dumped mere weeks before her long-anticipated wedding. Single for the first time in eight years, Lola attempts to rebuild with the help of her friends, sweet and supportive Henry (Hamish Linklater) and no-nonsense chatterbox Alice (co-screenwriter Zoe Lister-Jones), only to find that suddenly navigating the unfriendly waters of dating and relationships makes letting go and moving on much more easily said than done.

Breakout filmmaking duo Lister-Jones and Daryl Wein (of 2009's Breaking Upwards) infuse this post-breakup spiral story with humor and authenticity, as Lola's missteps accrue and her life begins to fray. Demonstrating how even the best intentions can backfire, likeable and quirky Lola is a sympathetic anchor even as she wreaks unintended emotional havoc on her nearest and dearest (including Debra Winger and Bill Pullman as her parents). Ultimately Lola Versus is a film about moving forward, but as anyone who has been through a rough breakup can attest, sometimes moving on means hitting rock bottom first.
