Watch: Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones Move On Up in 'Lola Versus' Trailer

"Lola Versus." Fox Searchlight
Filmmaking couple Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones are back after their relationship dramedy "Breaking Upwards," with another one that bears a lot of similarities, except for the fact that this time they're releasing a film via a studio (Fox Searchlight). What a difference three years make!

The trailer for their latest venture "Lola Versus," written by the two and directed by Wein (like "Breaking Upwards"), premiered today. In the film, indie darling Greta Gerwig looks like her winning self as the titular Lola, a woman trying to come to terms with turning 30. The fact that she just got dumped by her rock star boyfriend ("The Killing" star Joel Kinnaman) right before their wedding isn't helping matters.

Lister-Jones, who headlined "Breaking Upwards" opposite Wein, takes on supporting duties this time around as Lola's wisecracking best friend. Debra Winger also makes an appearance in the trailer as Lola's mom. Nice to have her back.

"Lola Versus" opens June 8, and premieres at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival in a few weeks. Go HERE for Indiewire's profile of Wein, back before "Breaking Upwards" opened.

    As a filmmaker you should know what NOBODY is telling you, that.....there was a lawsuit against Sundance, ( fraud and theft of submission fees) They don't watch the films, ( 12,000 films , 6 head programmers) the judge ruled they don't have to. That indiewire and Filmmaker magazine refuse to report this news, because they receive money from Sundance.
    That 7000 film festivals in the U.S. are operating fraudulent business's that are all connected to "without a box" which LEGALLY steals all filmmakers rights, once you have submitted to these film festivals.
    Filmmakers films are selling on Amazon, which they never legally allowed them to sell.
    If you believe in Sundance and that they are in fact interested in "discovering indy films" you had better awaken out of your bubble. Kevin Smiths film is already chosen for Sundance 2013, as are many other films, they have already been chosen. Sundance doesn't watch the films, they steal filmmakers money AND they award their own films! Another Earth, and Beasts of the Southern Wild, are both Sundance films, that won awards AND money!
