Lola's lucky. She was able to move back into her old place. Her parents are sympathetic. And she's got friends. The hilarious Alice (Zoe Lister-Jones) assures Lola that being single builds character ... and then proceeds to complain about being single. The lovable Henry is (Hamish Linklater) also friends with Luke, but is practically captain of Team Lola after the breakup. Plus he's sensitive, attractive, and both emotionally and physically convenient. You know, the perfect person to sleep with when actually no, she shouldn't be sleeping with anyone.

Been there, done that, still have awkward text messages about it.
Everything in Lola Versus is overshadowed by the breakup — even the happy moments. Lola's life isn't going where she'd hoped, but she doesn't know how to turn the car around. Instead, she's self-destructive as her 30th birthday looms. She drinks too much. She doesn't work on her dissertation. She has sex with inappropriate men. And she alienates her friends. She can't be there for them because she's crawled into her own head and decided to hibernate for the winter. When they find love, she feels abandoned, not happy for them. So Lola gets dumped by her friends, too. Can you blame them?
You'll have to watch Lola Versus, in select theaters now, to find out just what happens. And if you happen to be newly single, maybe make it a date night ... with yourself. See a trailer and more info here.
