‘Like Crazy’ Looks Like a Better Tale of Star-Crossed Love Than ‘One Day’
Don't get me wrong — having read the book, I'm excited for One Day, though Anne Hathaway‘s British accent is horrendous. But then came this Sundance winner Like Crazy, which stars Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones as college seniors who fall in love instantly but can't be together because of post-grad plans and responsibilities. Unlike Hathaway and Jim Sturgess‘ characters, who can't admit how powerful their connection is, Jacob and Anna try with all their might to make their relationship work despite the physical distance and desire to date other people. And the Ingrid Michaelson cover of “Fools Rush In” just does you in.
It's crazy how many little moments in this trailer reflect actually falling in love: The nonverbal inside jokes, the whispered conversations under covers, Anna making Jacob walk in step with her because she can't let him go for a second. I'm also really excited to see Jennifer Lawrence as the girl who comes between them, when Anna suggests that Jacob date other people while they're apart but never guesses that he might actually fall for someone.
And we have to wait til October 28! No fair.
