As an antidote to our pandemic wanderlust, The Criterion Channel has put together a list of films meant to remind us that going somewhere isn’t always a good thing.
In Kajillionaire, a young woman’s life goes off the rails when her con artist parents invite an outsider to take part in their scams.
On this week's episode of Loose Cannons, Justin and Mathew watch the soul-crushing, virginity-losing film Slumber Party '57.
We have not one, but two Lola Versus Blu-rays to give away. Greta Gerwig sparkles in this offbeat romantic comedy about looking for answers - and finding yourself - in a complicated world. When 29-year-old Lola (Gerwig) is dumped by her fiancé Luke (future Robocop Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before the wedding, she embarks on an emotional, year-long adventure of self-discovery filled with love, loss, hilarity and heartache. Guided (and often misguided) y the well-meaning advice of her close friends and eccentric parents, Lola's chaotic journey en route to the big 3-0 proves that a single tumultuous year can yield the lessons of a lifetime.
Thanks to the natural charm and grace of leading lady Greta Gerwig, Lola Versus fares better than a lot of similarly unrelatable NYC hipster fare.
