From acclaimed writer/director Janicza Bravo, Zola's stranger than fiction saga, which she first told in a now-iconic series of viral, uproarious tweets, comes to dazzling cinematic life.
Zola (newcomer Taylour Paige), a Detroit waitress, strikes up a new friendship with a customer, Stefani (Riley Keough), who seduces her to join a weekend of dancing and partying in Florida. What at first seems like a glamorous trip full of “hoeism” rapidly transforms into a 48-hour journey involving a nameless pimp, an idiot boyfriend, some Tampa gangsters and other unexpected adventures in this wild, see-it-to-believe-it tale.
“The breakout hit at Sundance, recounting each new jaw-dropping twist with breathless excitement.” The Guardian.
“Zola never lets you forget a Black woman is in charge in this wild, funny, dangerous film.” Arizona Republic.
“The kind of movie that feels just right for 2020, as chaotic as the moment we're living through” Elle.
