‘Like Crazy’ trailer released, sadness and angst to follow

August 2, 2011

For those of you who are anticipating another indie love story this fall, you’re in luck. The trailer for Drake Doremus’ “Like Crazy” is now available for your viewing pleasure.

The film was rather successful at Sundance this year, as it took home the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture. “Like Crazy” was also awarded the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress, recognizing British actress Felicity Jones.

“Like Crazy” tells the story of a love affair between a British college student (Jones) and an American (Anton Yelchin), which becomes complicated by an expired visa.

Jennifer Lawrence, who broke into the indie film scene with “Winter’s Bone,” which took home the Grand Jury Prize for Drama at Sundance in 2010, also makes a brief appearance in the trailer.

Let’s hope this film will have more success than “The Art of Getting By,” a teen romance set in New York City starring Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts which witnessed a disappointing domestic gross of about $1.5 million earlier this summer.

Judging from scenes with forlorn tears opposite of those with playful romance, this film will either end with the audience longing for youth, or a box of tissues.

“Like Crazy” opens October 28 and is being distributed by Paramount Vantage.
