Captures a generational moment - young people on the cusp of truly growing up, tiring of their reflexive cynicism, each in their own ways struggling to connect and define what it means to love and be loved.
Lola (Greta Gerwig) is 29 years-old and is happily engaged to her perfect man, Luke (Joel Kinnaman). But just three weeks before her big day, Luke calls it off, and Lola is forced to re-group as she cancels the wedding. While struggling to find happiness through sexual flings with her best friend, first dates with strangers, and attempts at re-connecting with her ex-fiancé, Lola realizes she's going to have to find herself first before she can find love and happiness. Written by
The film's title is a nod to Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One, the eighth studio album by British rock band The Kinks, recorded and released in 1970. See more »
If it's any consolation, his dick was so big it hurt my back!
Oh, he has a bigger dick than me too? No, that is a consolation. You should go into the greeting card business. 'Sorry I cheated on you. P.S. your dick is smaller!'

I can't complain about the camera work or the acting. While I didn't particularly enjoy them, nothing really struck me as bad in those departments.
The characters premise seemed to be one of emotional immaturity (whether prevalent or circumstantial), and with that in mind at least all behaved in understandable manners.
The problem is: I don't quite get why this was made into a movie. It was a pain to watch all the self-destructive behavior (most of it on the main characters side). It's a film about the usual average drama that happens in real life and no mitigating qualities to it. I tried to come up with reasons why anyone would want to see this movie, I could not come up with a reason.
