Greta Gerwig talks 'Lola Versus,' HBO's abandoned 'Corrections'
Why the indie It girl feels more comfortable with film than TV
If you pay attention to indie films then you already know who Greta Gerwig is, and you probably like her quite a bit. That's exactly what Fox Searchlight is counting on with the release of her new comedy "Lola Versus."
After a string of indies small ("Hannah Takes the Stairs," "Baghead") and not so small ("Greenberg," "Damsels in Distress"), Gerwig pretty much carries "Lola Versus" on her shoulders. The supporting cast includes actors known for TV work -- Zoe Lister-Jones ("Whitney"), Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") and Hamish Linklater ("The New Adventures of Old Christine") -- and brief appearances by Debra Winger and Bill Pullman as Gerwig's parents. But it's Gerwig who is front and center for the ad campaign and in the movie.
"Lola Versus" opens in limited release June 8
