What Lola wants, Lola gets. The seventeen-year-old (Sophie Lowe) has run away from home, allowing the world to believe that she has been kidnapped. While making her way across New Mexico she meets the cool and irresistibly charming rockabilly, Marlo (Beau Knapp), a fellow drifter who happens to be running from some demons of his own. The pair falls quickly and madly in love, but when Marlo finds out about the reward on Lola’s head, he must decide between turning her over to the authorities and journeying to Alabama to help her answer questions from her past. Tarantino-esque in its whip-sharp dialogue, indebted to the on-the-run romance of David Lynch’s Wild at Heart, and reminiscent of the novels of Jim Thompson (The Grifters, The Killer Inside Me), Rupert Glasson’s film presents a visually striking ode to young love set against the rich backdrop of the American desert. With breakout performances from the leading duo, the feature is dream-like in nature and charged with serious emotional urgency.
