Greta Gerwig sparkles in this offbeat romantic comedy about looking for answers – and finding yourself – in a complicated world. When 29-year-old Lola (Greta Gerwig) is dumped by her fiancé Luke (Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before the wedding, she embarks on an emotional, year-long adventure of self-discovery filled with love, loss, hilarity and heartache. Guided (and often misguided) by the well-meaning advice of her close friends and eccentric parents, Lola's chaotic journey en route to the big 3-0 proves that a single tumultuous year can yield the lessons of a lifetime.

Critics Consensus: It's fun to see Greta Gerwig mature her acting career but Lola Versus -- with its unpleasant characters and completely familiar script -- does not succeed as her first major leading role.

Gerwig's done enough good work to allow us to chalk this one up as a glossy blip.

It's such a mopey, navel-gazing affair that even Gerwig has a hard time saving it.

Hipster romantic dramedy has some sex, drinking, language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Lola Versus is an indie dramedy that focuses on the lives of a 29-year-old who was left at the altar and her friends. They're all single, many are looking for love, and their love lives and sex lives are explored. A handful of scenes portray characters hooking up; there's plenty of making out and some grinding, but no nudity aside from bare backs and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it glimpse of a naked backside. Characters also swear ("s--t," "f--k," etc.), drink (sometimes to the point of inebriation), smoke pot, and quarrel.
