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.
Hannah is a recent college graduate interning at a Chicago production company. She is crushing on two writers at work, Matt and Paul, who share an office and keep her entertained. Will a ... See full summary »
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.

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!'

At it's core, this is almost as entertaining as a Romantic Comedy should be. But, the setting for this story about a narcissistic, big-city, gen-Y girl seemed 'off'. I can imagine that girls in many places around the world get a sense of dread for that approaching 3-oh, but it's just not true for women, especially in many urban areas, where serious romance, and courting happens not only before 30, but after. I just can't imagine a girl living in a socially sophisticated place like New York City with a sense of foreboding that age is a limiting factor to finding the one she really should be with. The story also meandered a bit, as it tried to develop a clear direction, but while it was scattered, it finally found a direction at the end.
