Time is running out, and Lola (Ashleigh Sumner) has only one chance to salvage a job and save her relationship with new girlfriend, Casey (Jill Bennett). Wait, make that three chances. With the fast-paced, colorful, fragmented style of the epic German film Run Lola Run, this time bending tale by local filmmakers Megan Siler and Ellen Seidler, chronicles the tempestuous journey of a commitment phobic photographer, Lola. Typically immune to the lesbian ways of the U-Haul, Lola discovers that she might have finally found someone worth slowing down for. But not now. Now Lola is late. Lola has to run!Navigating San Francisco like a treacherous video game, Lola has mere minutes to tame the domineering meter maid, avoid the canine-wielding park chick, grab the photos, sidestep the ex, and deliver the proofs to the bar where girlfriend Casey is meeting with a prospective client (and her ex), the euro-hottie Danielle (Cathy DeBuono, Out at the Wedding). Thrust on a relationship crash course, Lola grows ever more determined to deliver, and claim her girlfriend from the potential rival. From the Embarcadero to Dolores Park to Chinatown, Lola sprints, bikes, hitches rides and flirts her way through the streets and back rooms of San Francisco. Time grows short. Will Lola make it? Will she come at all? With an exhilarating climax and pumping pop/rock lesbian soundtrack, And Then Came Lola is the fun-filled lesbian rom-com of 2009 complete with SF inside jokes and sexy bedroom scenes. Also in this program, Margaret Cho directs a music video for Jill Sobule that is pure San Francisco.
