One of the most buzz-worthy movies to come out of Sundance 2020 was Janicza Bravo's Zola.

This critically-acclaimed drama centres on a young woman who goes on a road trip to Florida with a woman she just met. The trip takes several unexpected turns as she gets mixed up in one crazy shenanigan after another. The film stars Taylour Paige as Zola and Riley Keough as Stefani.

The craziest part about this movie, though, is that it was supposedly inspired by a true story.
