Like Crazy Review

In a story about fighting to hold on to your first love, Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones dazzle in this must-see film!

Forget the movies about a boy and girl being friends with benefits or going the distance  — Like Crazy is spot on about a twenty-something’s take on love.

I saw Like Crazy at the Tommy Hilfiger New York premiere and it is one of the best movies I’ve seen about l’amour in awhile. In fact, in my book, it’s better than my favorite chick flick, Love Actually!

Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and Anna (Felicity Jones) are college students in L.A., who quickly fall in love after meeting in a writing class. The two spend their remaining time of school together, but are faced with the daunting question: “What are we going to do when we graduate?” With no plans or jobs in sight, the two spend an enjoyable summer together, but are eventually forced to part ways when Felicity has to return to her home country of England because of visa complications.

The film takes us through their post-college years as they start and stop their relationship again, again and again. They advance in their careers, find temporary distractions, but always end up back in each other’s arms. It really puts a new light on the concept of letting go and trusting fate to take its course.

I don’t want to spoil the movie too much for you, but it definitely poses a lot of questions we asked (or are asking!) ourselves when traipsing through a first serious relationship. When these relationships end — usually to the demise of distance — is it really over? And even though our first loves feel like the end all, be all — is there more than one person out there who will give us those same butterflies?

Like Crazy is so real and it will make you laugh AND definitely tear up a little bit, even if you aren’t one to cry. Plus, Anton Yelchin is such a cutie, and his chemistry with Felicity Jones is indescribable!

So grab your girls and see this movie that comes out in theaters in NYC and LA tomorrow, Oct. 28!
