When 29-year-old Lola (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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Screenwriters Daryl Wein (who also directed) and Zoe Lister Jones give Gerwig very little to do other than to be Gerwig.
Rotten: A well-intentioned indie that tries to be a "real" version of a Hollywood romantic comedy and ends up feeling more ersatz than ever.
Rotten: There's a Fitzgeraldian sense of generational malaise in all of this, but "Lola Versus" is convinced that it's hilarious.
Rotten: Gerwig remains one of the most captivating new stars to hit the big screen, but she's still looking for a movie that deserves her.
Authentic portrait of a single woman and modern relationships in NY. Rang true to me. And was hilarious!
This is a very cute, modern movie. It seems predictable from the trailer but I was actually surprised in the end. Just lovely.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie!
I'm not sure what the bad reviewers were watching. I saw a fun, well thought out and totally relatable romantic dramedy. The directing was great, Zoe Lister-Jones was hilarious and the guy who played Henry was also a good fit. the subject matter was relevant and the storyline was realistic... Something you won't find in the big Hollywood releases. I say watch it for yourself, you'll see...
