Opening today in Australia (!!) (after premiering in the US on 28th of October last year!) This is one of those times when I loathe, loathe just how long certain films get an airdate here in Australia. This is where a decision to not have a universal release date and just have the globe share in the delight of film, at the same time, makes me think THIS is why people download. Controversial statement I know! But this is why.
Like Crazy. It’s a very apt title, I have to say as it conveys such a passionate love, and intense feeling, where it borders on, well, crazy.
Irrational. As much as when you are making decisions based on your heart, for the most part it is all good intentions, right? I’m probably being a lot more philosophical than I need to be but this movie was so beautiful, and wistful yet all the more heartwrenching. In a way that I can only think to describe it best as ‘Blue Valentine’ for a marginally younger audience.
Felicity Jones (you may know her in such movies like ‘Chalet Girl‘.. or not) and Anton Yelchin are just glorious together. They are so well matched, it is such a voyeuristic feel to it, you honestly feel the chemistry is magnetic between them. I cannot speak highly enough of this film, yet at the same time, its not light. Its not one you can just throw on in the background; its intense. It just draws you in, and.. makes you sigh. That’s the best way I can describe it without ruining anything. Watch for a sparkling Jennifer Lawrence (aka Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming Hunger Games) in it (she’s not in it for a lot, but she makes a definite impact)
