Product Description An authentic story that perfectly captures coming of age in today's digital world, LOL is a remake of the hugely popular 2008 French film LOL (Laughing Out Loud)(R). Starting a new year of high school, Lola (Cyrus), (or "Lol," as her friends call her), works to find the right balance between family, school, friends and romance. Broken-hearted by her ex, Lol's world is soon turned upside down when she is surprised to find her best friend, Kyle (Douglas Booth), a musician in an up and coming rock band, could possibly be the love of her life. In her quest towards independence, self-identity and young adulthood, Lol discovers that while Facebook "status" is easy to change; true relationships are worth the effort. Amazon.com Miley Cyrus does an impressive acting job in LOL, a film that requires her character, Lola, to be online on her computer or phone for much of the plot. Movies about the Internet can be tricky, because there's so little action visible onscreen. But in LOL Cyrus's emotions--about texting and social-media relationships and friendships with fellow high schoolers--are front and center, and well acted. LOL is based on director Lisa Azuelos's original 2008 French film of the same name, and starring Sophie Marceau. The American remake is not as sparkling as the original, but LOL is at its best as a moving coming-of-age story in the digital era. Demi Moore plays Lola's mom, Anne, who believes she and her daughter are close and know each other intimately. But a chance peek at Lola's online confessions lets Anne know her daughter could be putting herself in danger. Meanwhile, Cyrus's Lola is a girl who just wants to be loved. The chemistry between Moore and Cyrus is also quite palpable and touching. The audience for LOL fans will include tweens, teens, parents, and those of us who love watching Lifetime Movie Network.
