I watched a sad film last night. I haven’t written a film review in a long time but had to write something about this one as it did cause an impression. It’s called ‘Like Crazy’ (Starring Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence, Directed by Drake Doremusand, 2011) and it’s about a British girl who is studying in the US and falls in love with an American boy. She decides to overstay her student Visa and spend the Summer so they can be together. When she goes back to see him she is barred at the airport due to her previous Visa violation. That’s when all problems begin, as it is impossible for them to be together. They both try to move on with their lives but really can’t. They end up seeing other people, getting back together and getting married, and yet still have their visa denied… There is a period of giving up, seeing other people again, but still the memory of that person and that impossible love is always present. In the end the bureaucratic problems are resolved and they are reunited but it ends up being bitter sweet, as so much crap had happened in the meantime, unnecessarily. If you watch it I think you’ll understand what I mean by this.
I give this film 7 green cards out of 10.
I am now off to watch some comedy.
