The smash hit from Sundance 2020, Zola stars Taylour Paige (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) as Zola and Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) as Stefani. Zola, a Detroit waitress, is seduced into a weekend of stripping in Florida for some quick cash — but the trip becomes a sleepless 48-hour odyssey involving a nefarious friend, her pimp, and her idiot boyfriend. Zola captures the stranger-than-fiction appeal of the viral Twitter thread that inspired it. A darkly comic and raucously outrageous road trip adventure.
