[Trailer] – Lola Versus

6 Apr


I’ve loved Greta Gerwig ever since I saw her in Noah Baumbach‘s Greenberg in 2010. And it looks like this may be the year that gets more people to fall in love with her. She’s starring in Whit Stillman‘s Damsels in Distress, Woody Allen‘s To Rome with Love, and takes the lead in Lola Versus, the trailer for which you can watch below.

In the film Ms. Gerwig plays the titular Lola, who at twenty-nine gets dumped by her long-time boyfriend just weeks before their wedding, and has to figure out life as a newly single woman approaching thirty. While this kind of story is one we’ve seen done before, I’m really looking forward to see what Ms. Gerwig does with the material. The trailer is also quick to point out that it comes from Fox Searchlight “the studio that brought you (500) Days of Summer“, so maybe this will do for the lovely Ms. Gerwig what that film did for the equally adorable Zooey Deschanel.

Directed by Daryl Wein; written by Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister Jones; starring Greta Gerwig, Joel Kinnaman, Hamish Linklater, Zoe Lister Jones and Debra Winger. Lola Versus opens June 8.
