Like Crazy is a film from and about the heart. Jacob, an American, and Anna, who is British, meet at college in Los Angeles and fall madly in love. It’s the purest kind of romance—they’re each other’s first significant attachment. When Anna returns to London, the couple is forced into a long-distance relationship. Their perfect love is tested, and youth, trust, and geography become their biggest enemies.
Taking a complete tonal departure from his last film, Douchebag, which screened at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, cowriter/director Drake Doremus poetically reveals the intimate details and daily struggles of Jacob and Anna’s love affair as it stretches between time and distance and changes course. Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones are enthralling in their sweetness and honesty as the young couple. An original, contemplative look at first love, Like Crazy strikes a universal chord as it explores the bittersweet beauty and impermanence of relationships. –Sundance Film Festival
Like Crazy is a triumph of independent filmmaking, reminding us that an incredibly robust, powerful film can be created on a small budget. A cathartic tale examining the nature of young love and commitment, this film delivers an intense emotional punch that draws a viewer in and puts his/her feelings on spin cycle. A phenomenal achievement.
It's the kind of movie that when encountered the second time around, you start to make sense of all the banalities that you first dismissed as inconsequential. It's honest. To me, at least, it reminded me of how sentiments are fleeting, L is ephemeral, and individuals, merely fugitives of the now, a transcendent experience, unparalleled, intimate, precious.
