The indie scene’s newest It Girl takes a stab at headlining the closest thing the indie crowd can get to a mainstream romantic comedy in the first trailer for “Lola Versus.” Directed by Daryl Wein and starring Greta Gerwig in the titular role, Lola is a suddenly adrift almost-30-year-old dumped by her fiance weeks before the wedding. Lola attempts to get her life back on track through therapy, power eating junk food and a series of sexual misadventures with new guys, all the while still occasionally being confronted with her new ex, a rock star who happens to look like Joel Kinnaman. I would be upset too, Lola.
“Lola Versus” (from the studio that brought you “500 Days of Summer”, in case you’ve forgotten) will be released on June 8th. See the first trailer below.
