Editorial Reviews

Like Crazy beautifully illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is devastating. When a British college student (Felicity Jones) falls for her American classmate (Anton Yelchin), they embark on a passionate and life-changing journey only to be separated when she violates the terms of her visa. Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for best Actress for Felicity Jones, Like Crazy depicts both the hopefulness and the heartbreak of love.

There have many films over the years about long distance romance including 2010's cute romantic comedy "Going the Distance." In that film it involves one person in New York and the other in L. A. The characters are put in circumstances that bring a chuckle or two. That way, the angst of the difficult romance is lessened. In this film whose title comes from a line "I love you `like crazy'" our lovers have more obstacles including distance. Jacob (Anton Yelchin) is a teaching assistant at a Los Angeles college where Anna (newcomer Felicity Jones) is a student from England. She has eyes for Jacob and leaves him a rather lengthy note on his car windshield. We only see glimpses of the note, but Jacob appreciates the effort and the humor of the contents. They go out and begin dating and eventually fall in love. During this section of the film we of course get to witness what I refer to as the "falling in love part". That is, running on the beach, eating ice cream, riding bumper cars and so on. Life is complicated however as Anna has a student visa that will expire so she must return to England for 3 months before returning. In spite of the potential consequences she decides to stay with Jacob for the summer before returning. Time quickly passes during this section but upon her return to the U. S. she is denied entry because she had previously overstayed her visa.

Anna and Jacob are deeply in love and we can feel their angst. We are led to believe that both are in love, but clearly Anna has been bitten much harder. With time passing before they can reunite, Jacob plays house with an assistant at his business (designing and making custom chairs). As played by Jennifer Lawrence, Sam has also fallen for Jacob.

Okay, let's start with Jacob's plywood chair company. Every time he started to draw a new plywood chair idea on a napkin, I had to laugh. Leave the plywood chairs to IKEA and other mass manufacturers.
I found some moments in this movie compelling, but for the most part it was agonizing to watch Anna and Jacob torture each other and their other partners with the ebb and flow of living together and living apart. Jennifer Lawrence does an admirable job portraying Jacob's other very admirable love interest. Felicity Jones' Anna seems to take the reins much of the time to keep whatever is left of their relationship from fading into the past. Anton Yelchin's Jacob is a limp, malleable character who goes with the flow probably more than he should.

SPOILER ALERT Ultimately the two have legal rights to live together in the US. When Anna receives the call from her parents' friend Harry (who has toiled for months to get approval for Anna to be able legally be in the US), Anna takes the call with the heaviness and frustration of knowing or at least questioning whether this is what she really wants for her future. Anna leaves a very rewarding career to move to the US and we see her looking up less than ideal jobs on the Internet. Jacob meanwhile gets to move back to his company/living space. Where is the fairness in this decision? The abrupt ending was probably realistic and very similar to the ending from "The Graduate". Okay, we are here, we are together, where do we go from here? Do we even really want to be together anymore?

More to follow.

I loved this movie! It is raw, emotional, and cuts to the very core of how distance and time affect a relationship. It is a movie directed by emotions and feelings, by silences and music rather than words. Watch it with an open mind and an open heart.

When `Like Crazy' was making the Sundance circuit and garnering much deserved attention, many were comparing it to 2010's devastating marital dissection piece, `Blue Valentine'. It was being heralded as this past years answer to the truth about relationships; a relationship life cycle of sorts. It was, obviously, much tamer (notably edited to achieve a PG-13 rating instead of the R rating it initially snagged) and it constructed its development differently (where `Blue Valentine' siphons the beginning of their relationship alongside the end of their marriage, `Like Crazy' starts at the beginning and follows it through in chronological order), but at the end of the day it has a very similar effect.

This film is so real.

I was expecting, in a way, to see a cheap knockoff of one of the best films in recent memory (`Blue Valentine' has only grown in my esteem as one of the first masterpieces of this current decade) but instead I received a special film; an intimate and unique fascinating look at love and the toll it takes on a person.

`Like Crazy' tells the story of Jacob and Anna. Jacob is an LA native, while Anna is from Europe and is in the States with a visa in order to attend college. That is where they meet and that is where they fall in love. Sadly, in a hasty lovelorn decision, Anna violates her visa in order to spend the summer with Jacob and winds up being refused entry back into the country once she leaves to attend a wedding. Forced to spend long spans of time apart, their love for one another (which is undeniable) is put to full test as they venture into other relationships while still trying to keep their own.
