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.

LOLA VERSUS puts the fun in dysfunctional love and is what happens when you shake life up a little bit and let it fall out of your hands.

Lola Versus is all Greta all the time, a bonanza for fans and proof that Gerwig's easy offbeat charm, obvious smarts and physical comedy gifts can carry a film.

An extremely smart, exquisitely funny film about finding yourself amid the clang and clutter of contemporary life.

It's a wonder Gerwig manages to keep the character endearing instead of grating, but she does.

Lola Versus has plenty of potential, but with a script that has absolutely no handle on its lead character, the experience quickly becomes unbearably frustrating.

While there was lot about this movie that I liked--Greta Gerwig is always great, it's stylistically quite watchable, and its humour is just sardonic… More

It was all right. It was kind of boring and slow paced and was lacking some overall charm or more character development. I thought Greta Gerwig was absolutely… More

Hanging around in supporting roles for a while now, Gerwig has proven to be a likable presence. Her first lead role shows just how charismatic she is as few… More
