Pacific Northwest Pictures + Mr. Will want to take you to see Julie Delpy‘s latest, LOLO, in Toronto.
Screening is Saturday, June 4, 2016 at Canada Square, 7 PM. The filmed premiered at TIFF ’15 to much acclaim!
LOLO is a hilarious romantic comedy starring, written and directed by Julie Delpy and starring France’s best comic actors including Dany Boon (Welcome to the Sticks, Supercondriaque),Vincent Lacoste (The French Kissers) and Karin Viard (Delicatessen, Polisse).
We’re into TIFF‘s final weekend and spotted a few notable names in the City today. Tomorrow the Closing Night Gala, Mr. Right will commence at both the Princess of Wales Theatre and Roy Thomson Hall and we expect to see both Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick out for that.
See who we saw today!
Julie Delpy.Making an extremely rare visit to the City today, Actor/Director/Writer Julie Delpy was spotted out in a foot cast. She tells me she broke her foot recently and being the trooper she is, that wasn’t enough to stop her from promoting her latest, Lolo. You know her best for hers, Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater‘s Before Sunrise Trilogy.
Julie Deply consistently has been force on-screen and behind the scenes, and on her newest outing Lolo, she proves once again magnificence. The Movie focuses on the dynamic of a struggling workaholic and her attention-seeking, manipulative son. With some truly hysterical and genuinely affecting moments as well, Lolo certainly will lift you up.
Violette (Julie Delpy) is on a spa retreat with her friend, Ariane (Karen Viard) who convinces her to finally put herself onto the dating field and talk to an awkwardly-cute man at the retreat, Jean-René (Dany Boon). Their relationship blossoms and turns from a one night fling to a steady relationship, well until Violette brings Jean-René home only to find out that her son Lolo (Vincent Lacoste) is there too, out to do everything and anything in his power to break them apart.
Lolo works so incredibly well because of the dynamics between the characters as well as the mischievous ways we witness Lolo try to sabotage his mother’s relationship. While crude, there is an undeniable charm here which keeps us invested. As well, the performances from the ensemble are extraordinary – this definitely exceeded this Reviewer’s expectations.
LOLO premieres TIFF ’15 on Friday, September 18th at 6:30 pm at Roy Thomson Hall, with a second screening on Saturday, September 19th at 12:30 pm at Isabel Bader Theatre and a third screening on Sunday, September 20th at 9:15 am at Scotiabank Theatre 2.
The 86th annual Oscars Luncheon aka took place earlier today in Beverly Hills in advance of the Academy Awards next month. Can we agree the Class of 2014 is an elegant bunch?
Is that Bradley Cooper two over from Tom Hanks? Is that Meryl at the top of the class as expected? What is Julie Delpy staring at? Doesn’t Cate Blanchett look super-thrilled? Where’s Jennifer Lawrence? 🙁 I assure you Amy Adams definitely isn’t wearing Valentino!
The 86th annual Academy Awards take place Sunday, March 2, 2014 and air on ABC.
