The first trailer for Like Crazy accurately captures the spirit of the movie: quiet, touching, bittersweet. The film stars newcomer Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin as a pair of young lovers whose relationship is put to the test when she must return to her home in England while he stays in the States. What ensues is the trajectory of a typical long-distance relationship for twentysomethings: tearful phone calls, breakup threats, and the constant question of whether love is worth fighting for.
I fell in love with the film back at Sundance, particularly for the great performances from its leads. Jennifer Lawrence also has a small role, but really, this film is all Yelchin and Jones. It's already been compared to Blue Valentine, but lighter and a bit less raw. Watch the trailer to see if it's up your alley when you read more.
