Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Lola Versus captures the obsessions, confusions, and neuroses of contemporary urban middle class consciousness. Lola (Greta Gerwig) thinks her life is perfect--until her fiancé Luke (Joel Kinnaman) breaks up with her mere weeks before their wedding. What follows is a comic floundering, what might be a 21st-century update to 1970s "finding herself" movies like An Unmarried Woman, only the men are just as sensitive and self-absorbed as the women. Fortunately, the filmmakers keep a sense of perspective and humor about it all, and just as fortunately the movie is grounded in the unusual presence of its lead actress. Gerwig is strikingly beautiful, a fusion of a 1920s movie star and a Renaissance Madonna, but projects ordinariness. When juxtaposed with typical movie stars, she seems awkward and goofy, but when she's the center of a movie, it all becomes suffused with her sweet approachability. The rest of the cast gets in tune, including Bill Pullman and Debra Winger as Lola's earnest, supportive parents and Hamish Linklater as Lola's best friend, Henry. The ending feels a bit tacked on, as if suddenly trying to harness the movie to a particular agenda, but the rest of Lola Versus enjoyably spins and wobbles in ways that resist easy labeling. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

When 29-year-old Lola (Gerwig) is dumped by her fiance‚ Luke (Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before the wedding, she embarks on an emotional, year-long adventure of self-discovery filled with love, loss, hilarity and heartache. Guided (and often misguided) by the well-meaning advice of her close friends and eccentric parents, Lola's chaotic journey en route to the big 3-0 proves that a single tumultuous year can yield the lessons of a lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful "relationship" movie June 27, 2012
Format:DVD
"Lola Versus" (87 min.) is the second feature film for real-life partners Daryl Wein (co-writer and director) and Zoe Lister Jones (co-writer and co-star), after the promising 2009 feature "Breaking Upwards". I caught "Lola Versus" just recently at the Esquire, the Cincinnati indie-movies theatre.

"Lola Versus" brings the story of Lola (played by Greta Gerwig), who is in a seemingly perfect relationship with boyfriend Like (played by Joel Kinnaman), as it is portrayed in the first 5 min. of the movie. In fact Luke proposes to Lola, who happily says yes. But alas, with only weeks before the wedding date, Luke breaks up with Lola. In the rest of the movie we see Lola struggling to cope with this devastating news, counting on her close friends to help her, including best girl pal Alice (played by Lister Jones) and best guy pal Henry (played by Hamish Linklater). It would ruin your viewing experience if I spelled out how it all unfolds, you'll just have to see it for yourself.

Several comments: first, the script is loosely based on the real life experience of Lister Jones and Wein breaking up for about a year and how Lister Jones coped as a newly single woman in her mid/late 20s. Second, I first noticed Greata Gerwig in "Greenberg" some 3-4 years ago, and in "Lola Versus" Gerwig again oozes charm (and talent) and she easily carries the movie on her shoulders. Her performance just transfixed me. Third, keep an eye out for Debra WInger and Bill Pullman as Lola's parents, in particular Pullman delivers some memorable lines. In all, I can't emphasize enough how charmed I was by the movie. This is way off the radar screenfrom your mainstream Hollywood fare. One of those "little movies that could", and then did. I was amazed when the end credits started rolling as I had no idea an hour and a half had come and gone. If you like a smart, engaging, delightful indie movie about "relationships", "Lola Versus" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

3.0 out of 5 stars Actress Greta Gerwig makes this film worthwhile October 10, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
My first experience watching Greta Gerwig was in a small movie from 2010 called "Greenberg." By my count she now has 6 films that have or will come out in 2012 including this one. Here she plays a 29 year old part time waitress trying to get her Ph.D. by explaining great literary pieces. Many will compare this "relationship" film to "Sex in the City" or Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture/Girls" and like those films/TV series, New York City is a central character.

The film opens with Lola about to get married to Luke (Joel Kinnaman, "Safe House"), a hunky dude she lives with. He gets cold feet a few weeks before the wedding, which is catastrophic for Lola. Propped up by her former hippie parents (Debra Winger and Bill Pullman) and a couple clichéd friends (co-writer Zoe Lister Jones and Hamish Linklater), the story follows Lola's attempt to regain her footing. She's confused and convinced that no one wants her, so begins a series of one night stands that includes her friend Henry (Linklater). I'm surprised she didn't try Alice (Jones). Now that would have been interesting.

After dipping her toe again with Luke and several all night drunken binges, Lola finally realizes she must confront her own self doubt before moving on. I don't mean to be a spoiler but the general story here is nothing new and nothing most haven't seen before. What is interesting is Greta Gerwig in her first lead performance. There's something about her. Her charisma, her quirky charm, her below-the-radar attractiveness that allows the brief (89 minutes) film to be worthwhile.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New Here May 15, 2013

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Pretty standard stuff, mid-20's "who am I, what is it all about, love, life....." Gerwig is wonderfully off center and odd and give a wonderful performance, but you have seen this film before. Perhaps it is a reinventioin of the tale for a younger generation. Worth seeing for $4.

3.0 out of 5 stars Greta's Got Talent May 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This was an enjoyable film, showcasing Greta Gerwig's talent and offering up a story that seemed convoluted at times. There is little question of Ms. Gerwig's talent. She appears to be the quintessential Woody proscribed heroine. This was so much more than earlier appearance in 'Greenberg.'

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste! May 11, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Rented this one night, the trailer looked ok. The acting was SO bad, this was probably the worst amateur hour acting I have ever seen in a movie. Star "Lola" Greta Gerwig was completely unbelievable, boring, monotone, unemotional.

I watched it the whole way through, it was pretty much about a girl that got dumped who was -rediscovering?- or attempting to herself through new dates with her friends/others. I didn't get the title "Lola vs. sex, love, the world" there was no "world" besides her group of 2 friends in the movie, and there was certainly no "sex." The only reason why I kept watching was because her best friend in the movie was cute and entertaining.

Disappointing. I'm sorry I actually paid the $2.99 to watch this.

They're charging too much money for Greta's recent movies. This isn't different enough from all the others to warrant this high price.
