    Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'Lola Versus' [Movies]
    Print this page

    I have a confession to make: I don’t actually see every single movie that I write about here. However, if I haven’t seen the movie, I watch the trailer and read about it so I can give you, dear readers, the most complete and accurate information that I can. That’s my job. But, like you, I judge what I do go see largely upon whether the trailer makes it look interesting. For most people, if a movie looks dumb or silly based on a trailer, they’ll just decide not to see it and move on. I don’t always have that luxury. Take the subject of this article, for instance: the brand new romantic comedy Lola Versus. After watching the trailer, all I wanted to do was make fun of it, but, honestly, the best way to do so is just to show it to people. I feel like it speaks for itself - but then I remember that we currently live in an age where Bridesmaids is considered funny (hint: it’s not funny) and then I just despair.

    So, please forgive my digression into complete personal transparency. With your permission, we will now move on to the topic at hand: Lola Versus, currently playing at Village 8 Theater as part of the Louisville Exclusives series.

    Daryl Wein’s new film stars Greta Gerwig as Lola, a woman in her late 20s about to get married – until her fiancé leaves her just weeks before the big day. Now she has to deal with so many of the dangers of depressed single people: binge eating, shoes breaking, general mishaps, and, of course, a series of hilariously awkward dating attempts. Will she find the secret to life and love? You’ll just have to watch to find out – and remember, a woman is nothing without a man on her arm. (A joke – don’t get offended – but seriously, isn’t that what so many chick flicks seem to imply, if you think about it? I could go on and on here.)

    Lola Versus is scheduled to play at Village 8 until this Thursday, July 19. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
