Lola Versus

Rated R 86 minutes 2012

Utterly predictable romantic comedy about a jilted young Manhattan woman, with conventional TV sitcom rhythms and routines – and yet we can’t take our eyes off Lola, played with her usual self-deprecation by actress Greta Gerwig. Lola does what every wronged rom-com maiden is supposed to do – binge-eating, binge-drinking, sleeping around, following bad advice from her ninny friends, etc. Gerwig is plainly willing to do anything to remain in character. There has been no greater test than this of the former mumblecore queen’s essential charisma, but she manages to overcome. Barely. Directed by Daryl Wein from a screenplay he developed with actress/writer Zoe Lister Jones, who plays Lola’s pal Alice. Not a total loss. (86 min.)
