The relationship-challenged Lola (Ashleigh Sumner, a dead ringer for Jodie Foster) sprints around San Francisco to prove her fealty to girlfriend Casey (Jill Bennett) before Casey can get seduced away by a new business partner. Although it preserves the frenetic tripartite set-up of Tom Tykwer’s 1998 film, with Lola embarking on her journey three times (each with a different outcome), the lesbian-ified version of Run Lola Run replaces the crime and money with intense discussions about commitment. (Is that a rib nudge?)
