Lola Versus


Just three weeks before her wedding, Lola (Greta Gerwig) finds herself suddenly without a partner when her longtime fiance, Luke (Joel Kinnaman), dumps her. With her 30th birthday looming and being forced to re-enter the New York City dating scene, she feels adrift in a cold world. She leans on her friends (Zoe Lister-Jones, Hamish Linklater) for support but, after a series of romantic humiliations, professional blunders and boozy antics, Lola realizes that she alone is in charge of her fate.

  • Peter Rainer

    Lola is, in other words, a believable heroine for our times.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    This is a movie that manages to be light and funny and still transcend age, background and culture to treat with compassion our ability to behave in our own worst interests and still nurture hope for the future.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Gerwig transforms the ordinary screenplay into something that is by turns charming, touching, and funny.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    It's one girl against the world in Lola Versus, a snappy yet sincere romantic comedy that begins where others end, with the proposal and wedding plans pointing toward happily ever after.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Gerwig is adorable, but that's both good and bad, as the movie can't stop cuing us to see that Lola's winsomeness will rescue her.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Gerwig singlehanded carries this blithe, generally forgettable story.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    At 24 minutes, Lola Versus might be a middling episode of a sitcom like "New Girl." At 87 minutes, it is a gracefully aimed arrow shot in the air. Where it lands, Wein and Lister Jones know not where.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Lola Versus, like Lena Dunham's show "Girls," brings an indie perspective and cast to this mainstream genre. In the more limited medium of film, this is a mixed bag.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Like the character at its center, Wein's film suffers from a certain sense of inertia, which is where Gerwig comes in.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    More than subverting or satirizing the modern lady-in-crisis movie, he has made a big, broad stoner comedy, shot and performed naturalistically, from a woman's point of view. Narratively, it's not a huge shock where the film ultimately goes, but there are a number of fun surprises along the way.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • John DeFore

    Convincing in its depiction of late-20s romantic anxiety (if not of that age bracket's real estate realities), it is broadly appealing without bowing too deeply to formula.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    That strong presence in the center almost makes Lola Versus watchable even as it starts to get formulaic, preachy and tiresome.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Lola Versus isn't a bad movie. It's just not a particularly noteworthy one. It's too self-consciously ... everything.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    What's translated to film feels like a rough draft, with bullet points at beginning and end, demarcating Lola lost, Lola found. And in the middle? A vast, vague maw.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jennie Punter

    Lola Versus is all Greta all the time, a bonanza for fans and proof that Gerwig's easy offbeat charm, obvious smarts and physical comedy gifts can carry a film.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Lister is quite funny and engaging. It's just too bad that some of that screenwriting wit couldn't have been shared with the movie's protagonist.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A well-intentioned indie that tries to be a "real" version of a Hollywood romantic comedy and ends up feeling more ersatz than ever.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Here that soul-baring, soul-searching is the centerpiece of the film. Unfortunately, not much else about Lola Versus matches that standard.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    It is the movie's uneven writing-half funny and daring, half punishing and senseless-that proves to be Lola's biggest opponent.

    Time Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Take Lola Versus, a Greta Gerwig vehicle that feels like a pilot awaiting pick-up from a network that doesn't exist.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • James Mottram

    You'd think Greta Gerwig's bones were hurting, so achingly hip is this irritating New York indie.

    Total Film Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    In spite of its scruffy look and slack pacing, it often rings as false as any of the big, shiny and soft studio rom-coms (starring Kate Hudson or Katherine Heigl, say) of the last decade.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Don't be fooled by the indie trappings: despite its downtown vibe, Lola Versus is as clichéd as any Hollywood rom-com.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Gerwig is plenty charming, considering the rote stuff she has to work with. Yet this still feels like a real devolution - hopefully short-lived - after her distinctively eccentric turns in "Greenberg" and "Damsels in Distress."

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Lola Versus arrives with a pedigree that suggests it should be better than it sounds. It isn't.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Gerwig remains one of the most captivating new stars to hit the big screen, but she's still looking for a movie that deserves her.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    A year in the life of a young woman unhappy in love and uncertain in career, Lola Versus could easily be faulted for the narrowness of its worldview.
