Like Crazy (2011)

Bittersweet indie romance that "illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is devastating." Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and Special Jury Prize for Acting (for Felicity Jones, Cemetery Junction) at the Sundance Film Festival 2011.

British college student Anna (Jones) falls for her American classmate Jacob (Anton Yelchin, Charlie Bartlett) in Los Angeles. Entangled in a passionate romance, the pair are suddenly separated when Anna violates the terms of her visa and returns home. Forced into a long-distance relationship, Anna and Jacob battle isolation, US customs bureaucracy and jealousy as new potential suitors arrive on the scene. Also stars Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone).

Winner Grand Jury Prize (Drama) and Special Jury Prize for Acting (Jones), at Sundance Film Festival 2011.

Interestingly, Doremus leaves out almost everything a more traditional romance would highlight (the first kiss, the poetic declarations of love, the sex), and the film hits all the harder for zeroing in on the subtler, quieter moments in between.

Realism rules in this transatlantic heartbreaker. With stellar turns, particularly from Jones, this is your Valentine’s Day date sorted.

Largely a conventional, wan affair, despite its art-cinema flourishes.

A reminder of the awful fact that all choices are permanent, to some degree. Life cannot be rewound and done over. It's a grownup love story.

The scenes showing Jacob and Anna falling in love have a freshness... some of the whispered endearments under the sheets are delightful.
