It feels like the movie doesn't know what to do with Lola. She's an outsized, original character but the indie movie she's in is, aside from a few hipster trappings, as neat and tidy as a Hollywood romantic comedy.
The thing is, Gerwig is delightful, but she's in a constant wrestling match between her lively instincts and the dead instincts of the material, which insist on defining a woman by her relationships to men.
"Lola Versus" is directed by Daryl Wein and co-written by his partner Zoe Lister-Jones, but the its real auteur is Greta Gerwig. The actress plays the title character as if her career depended on it -- which it doesn't, but the movie does.
