A story that follows a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment), apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer), and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possibility dwindles.
A French romantic follows his dream girl to NYC, but a weekend of white lies, one-night-stands and tangled love triangles prove infatuation and romance are not what they seem. Featuring indie darling Greta Gerwig.
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.

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 will never watch another Fox Searchlight film because whenever I do movies like this happen. Either Greta Gerwig is a talented bright young actress who just does schmaltzy fake indie movies or some diabolical executive's evil invention designed to single handedly kill non-mainstream cinema. I'm not sure. Lola Versus is a feeble boring predictable yawn-fest about a beautiful young woman who just can't seem to find love in America's and possibly the world's greatest city. I could go on but why? The one star is solely for Gerwig's infectious charm and magnetism even though I feel like she is slowly ruining my love for New York City.
