  Lola on Blu-ray, DVD and EST
  It never Rainers but it pours
  STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce that a newly restored 4K version of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's 1981 drama, LOLA, will be released on DVD, BD and EST on July 3. A boxset of Fassbinder's films will also be released by STUDIOCANAL on October 23.

Set in a small West German town in 1957, a booming economy is generating a new sense of optimism. In the town brothel, Villa Fink, Lola (Barbara Sukowa - Berlin Alexanderplatz, Romance and Cigarettes), a young high-class prostitute with a zest for life, is the star of the show. Her favourite client is the influential developer Schuckert (Mario Adorf - The Tin Drum), who enjoys spending time at Villa Fink with city officials important to his construction business. When von Bohm (Armin Mueller-Stahl - The Game, Angels & Demons), an upright, energetic building commissioner with a liberal, social-democratic outlook, arrives in the town, he falls in love with Lola without being aware where she works by night. Although he is shocked when he learns of her true identity, he nevertheless marries her. As a result, Lola gains a husband and Schuckert is awarded a new building contract. Ultimately neither Lola, von Bohm or Schuckert are really concerned with what has happened in the past or the morality of their decisions - the main thing is that they get what they want.
