It’s deeply distressing to see an actress such as Greta Gerwig, whose work I enjoy so immensely since she popped up in Hannah Takes the Stairs, end up in so many films that I didn’t like. Namely 2011’s The Dish & The Spoon and Arthur. That said, it sure won’t stop me from being hopeful that she will break out big in 2012, with Whit Stillman’s  Damsels in Distress hitting this week, a spot in Woody Allen’s To Rome with Love in the summer and this film, Lola Versus. Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for Lola Versus, in which Ms. Gerwig plays the titular gal, who finds herself dumped by her boyfriend just three weeks before their wedding. In response, she sets out with a group of her closest friends on and adventure through life and love that will hopefully help her deal with coming up on 30 as a single woman. It’s not exactly targeted at bearded 20-something men like myself, but I’ll be damned if Greta isn’t super charming in this trailer. Consider me an optimist on this one. You may find yourself in a similar position after watching the trailer.

Directed by Daryl Wein (Breaking Upwards), Lola Versus tells the tale of Lola, a 29-year-old woman dumped by her longtime boyfriend Luke (Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before their wedding. With the help of her close friends Henry (Hamish Linklater) and Alice (Zoe Lister-Jones), Lola embarks on a series of desperate encounters in an attempt to find her place in the world as a single woman approaching 30.

Fox Searchlight will release Lola Versus into theaters on June 8, 2012.
