Call it “2000 Days Of Bummer,” “Light Blue Valentine” or whatever you want, but the buzz around Drake Doremus’ “Like Crazy” is undeniable.
Starring Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and (in a small role) Jennifer Lawrence, the film is an intimate chronicle of the difficulties of long-distance love. It was met with a string of positive notices out of the Sundance Film Festival and picked up the Grand Jury Prize for best film in the U.S. Dramatic Competition as well as a Special Jury Prize for acting for Felicity Jones. Not bad. The picture was picked up — somewhat surprisingly — by Paramount and while there’s still no word on a release date, some clips are online to give you a taste of what’s to come. Handheld, close up and with a lived-in documentary feel, “Like Crazy” looks set to break our hearts and we certainly can’t wait to see it.
Check out the clips from the film below and if Jones’ performance is that good, we’re guessing “Like Crazy” will be prepped for an awards season release. [Vulture]
