The French romantic comedy, Lolo, written and directed by and starring two-time Academy Award®-nominee Julie Delpy (Before Sunrise), will be released in the U.S. on March 11, 2016.
In Lolo, Violette (Delpy), a 40-year-old workaholic with a career in the fashion industry, falls for a provincial computer geek, Jean-Rene (acclaimed comedy actor Dany Boon, star of French box-office phenomenon Welcome to the Sticks), while on a spa retreat with her best friend. But Jean-Rene faces a major challenge: he must win the trust and respect of Violette’s teenage son, Lolo (Cesar Award-nominee Vincent Lacoste), who is determined to wreak havoc on the couple’s fledging relationship and remain his mother’s favorite.
Lolo made its World Premiere at the 2015 Venice Film Festival and North American Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
“I am beyond ecstatic that Lolo, a film that means so much to me, will be released theatrically in the U.S.,” said writer, director and star Julie Delpy. “As a filmmaker and actress, I have put my heart and soul into this film; I am so happy that I can share Lolo with American audiences.”
