1828 - Lola Versus
I kind of adore Greta Gerwig, so I'll largely watch whatever she's in :) I'd seen the filmmaker's previous film 'Breaking Upwards' (also on netflix) and I dug it. At the beginning the film felt off - like it was the kind of plot that belonged in a typical studio rom-com, but as it went along it felt a lot more fresh as it delved into the complications of Lola and her relationships. It's a cute film and enjoyable for sure - but it didn't knock my socks off by any means. If you like rom-coms, and you have a liking for Gerwig then check it out for sure.
