Actress Julie Delpy began her performing career while still a teenager in the 1980s in such films as Jean-Luc Godard’s DETECTIVE and Bertrand Tavernier’s BEATRICE. She went on to appear in such arthouse gems as Krzysztof Kieslowski’s THREE COLORS trilogy, RED, WHITE and BLUE. The revered Polish director gave the young actress some good advice: “He used to tell me: ‘Make movies that fit you,’” recalled Delpy. Both in front of and behind the camera, she’s taken those words to heart.

Delpy traveled to Hollywood to appear in Roger Avary’s KILLING ZOE and has been here ever since, though her mindset remains far from typical studio fare. With director Richard Linklater and co-star Ethan Hawke, she memorably traced a relationship across the years in BEFORE SUNRISE, BEFORE SUNSET and BEFORE MIDNIGHT (sharing Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nominations for the latter two). Her feature directorial debut, 2 DAYS IN PARIS, and such follow-ups as SKYLAB take a similarly knowing look at the human condition.

Like the best independent filmmakers, Delpy knows how to turn her love for characters - in all their diversity and imperfection – into engaging entertainment, and in LOLO she wrings laughter from what might be described as a lopsided love triangle, starring as Violette, whose relationship with an affable IT engineer (Dany Boon) runs afoul of her jealous son (Vincent Lacoste). The new comedy is as smart, honest and humane as its creator; once again, Julie Delpy has made a movie that fits her well.

Series programmed by Gwen Deglise. Program notes by John Hagelston.

Writer-director-actress Julie Delpy appears in person for a Q&A following her new film, LOLO, and following romantic comedy favorite 2 DAYS IN PARIS.
