You know I love to sit down and watch a new film. I especially like movies with people that around my age as they are easy to relate to. When I heard about Lola Versus, I thought it might be fun to view. It released to DVD and Blu-Ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment on September 11th. In a very brief overview of the plot, I’ll say that it’s about a girl (Lola) who is engaged and then her fiance calls off the wedding three weeks before the big day. The movie follows her journey from a heart-broken and confused 29-year old to a better 30-year old woman. In fact, check out this list of things to do before you turn 30 which was inspired by the film.
I thought it was interesting yet somewhat predictable to see Lola deal with the break-up. I mean she saw a couple of different guys and ate different foods. She tried all of the old cliche things you’re supposed to do after a hard break-up. If you are going through one, I’m sure you might find solace in the film by seeing someone else surviving it and making mistakes. You can also enjoy the Modern Post-Breakup Songs – Songza Playlist to entertain you and help you.
Overall, it was an ok film. I don’t think I’ll watch it a second time, but it was good enough to see once. Anyone who has suffered a break-up can relate to it. Plus, anyone about to turn 30 might understand the need to accomplish a few things off your bucket list before it happens. So, have you seen it? What did you think of it?
