Lola Kirke has done the indie rounds: from working with David Fincher to joining forces with the unbeatable arthouse duo that is Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, she’s now stepping into new unchartered realms, of music and of neo-noir. Starring in Aaron Katz’ Gemini, in a role apparently written for her alone, Lola immerses into the neon-lit world of an surreal LA. Playing Jill LeBeau, assistant to a Hollywood starlet named Heather (Zoë Kravitz), she gets swept into the shadowy, seedy and downright dangerous underbelly of celeb culture and self-obsession.
A musician-actress from the famed Kirke family – daughter of Simon and Lorraine, sister of Jemima and Domino – Lola’s got a little bit of understanding of being around talent. Talking the power of Julie Christie, the dangers of the second self, and becoming the musician she has longed to be, Lola Kirke is effortlessly witty and sharply intelligent, and she’s sure got some tricks up her sleeve. To celebrate the release of Gemini, and Lola Kirke’s general old-timey charisma, photographer Michael Leviton transformed the actress in a captivating subtitled shoot.
