England, 1941, sisters Thomasina and Martha have created a machine that can intercept broadcasts from the future. With World War II escalating the sisters decide to use the machine as a weapon of intelligence, with world-altering consequences.
In 1941, music-loving sisters Thomasina (Emma Appleton, Everything I Know About Love) and Martha (Stefanie Martini, Prime Suspect 1973) build a machine called LOLA which can intercept broadcasts from the future. While the sisters initially use the machine for small ventures like becoming the first fans of 1970’s music, they soon realise that it may hold the key to defeating the Nazis. LOLA proves to be massively effective in shifting the tide of the war, but as Thomasina begins to become carried away with the level of power the machine holds over the future, the sisters soon discover the world-altering consequences of their actions.
Featuring original music by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy and shot on 16mm and 35mm film stock, LOLA is directed by Andrew Legge from a script he co-wrote with Angeli Macfarlane (Death of a President) with 16 and 35mm photography by Oona Menges. LOLA also stars Rory Fleck Byrne (This Is Going to Hurt), Aaron Monaghan (Assassin’s Creed), and Hugh O’Conor (Chocolat).

“Even with all the metaphysical mayhem, the movie remains rooted in the lives and attitudes of its characters, and in the magnetic performances of Martini and Appleton.
“Shot on film, using vintage equipment, the picture has a scrappy, tactile quality, its ghostly black-and-white images scratched and scorched.”
“The most audacious film you’ll see this year.”
