Lola (2001) Movie Review

Poor Lola. Her husband is verbally abusive. Her life is basically meaningless. She claims to be defined by her possessions. Sad life.

But maybe she'll find salvation in the girl wearing a blonde hooker wig (Joanna Going) she encounters one evening while drowning her sorrows. Ultimately, and I will not spoil what happens (not that it matters), Lola (Sabrina Grdevich) will put on the wig herself and hit the open road in the barren wilds of Canada as she searches for some meaning in her life.

It's easy to see why Lola is so fascinated with Going's Sabrina: She has an easy charm and laid-back demeanor that exists only in the movies. It makes sense that ultimately Lola will become a Sabrina copycat, but unfortunately that's where the movie fizzles out. Lola's road trip is a stifling bore, bedding a guy who picks her up hitchhiking (he's got his own issues, which the film takes pains to explore) and visiting her mom, stretched out over nearly an hour of footage. This is a quest for one's identity?

Maybe she should've stayed lost.
