Flashback: LOL — an Indie film

This could very well be my earliest memory of one of today’s most used acronym for “laugh out loud.”

[From SF Indie Fest, February 2007]

LOL — The Movie

- Director: Joe Swanberg (USA 2006)
- Runtime: 81 minutes

Storyline: Alex, Tim, and Chris view the women in their lives through a computer screen or the lens of a camera-phone, struggling to balance their online fantasies and addictions with the demands of real life. Featuring a nonprofessional cast, video contributions from people all over the world, and music by lead Kevin Bewersdorf, “LOL” shows how the latest tools of communication can either help us click or turn us off.

Trailer: LOL — The Movie (2006)
Director’s note: “We started with nothing but the theme of relationships and technology, and over the course of 6 months we discovered a film much funnier, sadder, and more relevant that I ever could have hoped for.” — Joe Swanberg
