I've read some mixed reviews about 'Like Crazy', but the trailer has already won me over and I can't wait to see this film. Directed (and written) by Drake Doremus and shot on a Canon 7D, 'Like Crazy' stars young actors Felicity Jones, Anton Yelchin and Jennifer Lawrence. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January, but the official release date for the US is October 28, 2011. Btw, I figured out that the song in the trailer is sung by Ingrid Michaelson - it has to be one of the most beautiful versions of this Elvis song I've ever heard!
Anyway, you can watch the trailer below and here's the official synopsis:
A love story is both a physical and emotional tale, one that can be deeply personal and heartbreaking for an audience to experience. Director Drake Doremus' film 'Like Crazy' beautifully illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is devastating. When a British college student (Felicity Jones) falls for her American classmate (Anton Yelchin) they embark on a passionate and life-changing journey only to be separated when she violates the terms of her visa. Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and of the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress for Felicity Jones, 'Like Crazy' depicts both the hopefulness and the heartbreak of love.
