Getting back out there at the end of a relationship is no easy feat, but what do you do when the breakup comes just as you’re about to get married? That question is at the heart of this summer’s romantic comedy “Lola Versus” starring Greta Gerwig.
Directed by Daryl Wein (“Breaking Upwards“), the story follows Lola (Gerwig) who gets dumped by her fiancé (Joel Kinnaman) mere weeks before their wedding. With the help of her close friends, Lola embarks on a series of unexpected encounters in an attempt to find her place in the world as a single woman approaching 30. In the scene in the exclusive clip below, we see Lola fresh off the dissolution of her relationship, being advised by her best friend Alice (Zoe Lister-Jones, who also co-wrote the film with Wein) about what to do next. It’s a warm, funny scene that’s a nice tease for what audiences can expect from the film.
“Lola Versus” will open on June 8th, but will first make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Tuesday, April 24th at 6:00 PM at the BMCC Tribeca PAC. The cast & filmmakers will be in attendance.
