Narcissism in New York
On her 29th birthday, Lola (Greta Gerwig) anticipates the catastrophic year in store for her. One morning she had the perfect apartment, fiancé, friends and family. The next, turbulence ensued as her fiancé called off their planned wedding. So she begins a life of debauchery in New York, endeavouring to experience more men, but the trail of destruction she leaves behind forces her to reconsider her choices. It’s light fare with an inevitable return to the moral high ground, saved by the performance of Greta Gerwig.
