Frank & Lola Trailer

"He played you. You got played." Paladin has released the official trailer for an indie drama titled Frank & Lola, a self-described "psychosexual noir romance about love and sex", set mostly in Las Vegas. Michael Shannon plays a top notch chef living in Las Vegas, who meets and hooks up with the fairly broken and troubled Lola, played by Imogen Poots. The two get mixed up in various sexual encounters while dealing with other personal problems in their own lives. I actually saw this at the Sundance Film Festival, where it premiered earlier this year, and it's fairly forgettable. The story is all over the place, it relies too much on the sex without much substance elsewhere, and the performances are fine but don't stand out in anyway. Also featuring Justin Long, Michael Nyqvist and Rosanna Arquette. If you're still curious, give it a look.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Matthew Ross' Frank & Lola, direct from Paladin's Vimeo:

Frank & Lola Poster

Set in Las Vegas and Paris, two of the world’s most glamorous cities, Frank & Lola is a psychosexual noir romance about love and sex, obsession and betrayal, revenge and redemption. Matthew Ross’s debut feature stars Michael Shannon as Frank, an up-and-coming chef, and Imogen Poots as Lola, an aspiring fashion designer, who find one another at a point when each is at a defining moment in life. Their affair is sudden, passionate, and seemingly everything Frank has always wanted. But, his happiness proves short-lived when a man from Lola’s past, a past that is full of secrets, turns up on the scene, forcing Frank to question whether he can trust Lola—or himself. Frank & Lola is both written & directed by filmmaker Matthew Ross, of many short films previously making his feature directorial debut. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Paladin will open Frank & Lola in theaters + on VOD starting December 9th.

    Shannon looks great, but I never cared for Imogen Poots. It could be okay especially for a major picture debut.

    Imogen Poots.....what a name.
  • eurogibbon
    I'd watch Imogen Poots in anything. She had a great double act going with Anton Yelchin :(

    To be honest, I can picture Michael Shannon with Rosanna Arquette in this. She doesn't get enough attention. Imogen Poots does not belong here. Only as someone aside from this ...
