                                                              Like Crazy(2011)
the movie starts off when anna and jacob meet at a la university. anna one day leaves jacob a note on his car winshield under the wiperblade. the note confesses how she feels for jacob.jacob feels the same and the two began spending all there time together.the two fall in love. as the film progresses, you find out jacob has a talent of making furniture. also anna is a writer and jacob finds out the chair she uses is uncomfortable. jacob makes her a chair that anna loves.as the semester comes to an end and the two graduate. anna is suppose to go back to the uk as her visa will expire. anna decides to stay and spend the summer with jacob. when ann goes back to the uk she loses her visa due to the fact she violated her rights to keep her visa. the two are sperated and call eachother at first. then jacob goes to visit and the two talk about getting married so anna can go back to the us.jacob goes back to the states. both anna and jacob meet other peopkle and begin life without eachother for a period. jacob goes back and the two get married. one day jacob and anna get into a fight over jacob still texting the other girl sam. jacob decides to leave and the two go on with their lives and see the people they met while away.anna calls jacob and tells him she finally got her green card and wants to come back with jacob. jacob picks her up from the airport and the ending of the movie is really depressing and sad. it takes the two back to jacobs aprtment . the two are in the shower holding eachother and kissing. jacob and anna both stop and look at eachother. the two realize that with everything that happened they fell out of love. jacob gets out of the shower and walks away as anna looks at him. this is how the movie ends. in my opinion tis show the ignorance of people and what they take for granted.the cast is great in this and really pull their weight. anna is played by felicity jones,jacob is played by anton yelchin and sam by jennifer lawerence.director drake dremus did a great job with ben york jones script. he had a great vision for telling this story. director of photography john guleserian had some great shots but at times the camera seemed alittle shaky.they shot this film on the 7d and it looks really good. like crazy was an official selection in sundance 2011. it was sold to paramount for four million dollars. overall i give it 10 of 10 stars.
