Based on a series of tweets published in 2015, ZOLA follows the larger-than-life adventures of a waitress, Zola, who is convinced/cajoled/seduced by one of her customers to go to Tampa for a stripping spree to make a wad of cash and ends up on a wild and perilous ride full of pimps, gangsters, and dumb boyfriends. Zola’s competency and self-awareness are her best weapons in a world where no one is looking out for her best interests. – IM
“A film that brashly merges traditional and disorientingly new ways of telling stories, and finds both chaos and wisdom in the chasm between them.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
