Drake Doremus' "Like Crazy" was no doubt the biggest hit at Sundance this year. It nabbed the Grand Jury Prize and a Special Jury Prize for up-and-coming actress Felicity Jones (beating out such buzzed-about rivals as "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Take Shelter," "Another Earth," "Pariah" and "Circumstance"). Prior to the awards, the romance was picked up by Paramount for a whopping $4 million.

Drake Doremus' "Like Crazy" was no doubt the biggest hit at Sundance this year. It nabbed the Grand Jury Prize and a Special Jury Prize for up-and-coming actress Felicity Jones (beating out such buzzed-about rivals as "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Take Shelter," "Another Earth," "Pariah" and "Circumstance"). Prior to the awards, the romance was picked up by Paramount for a whopping $4 million.

With the just-released trailer for the film, we're starting to see what all the fuss is about.

Doremus' follow up to "Douchebag" tracks the long distance relationship between a British college student (Jones) and her American boyfriend (Anton Yelchin).

Navigating love overseas isn't the easiest of things and this heartbreaking clip makes it very clear. Set to a moving cover of "Only Fools Rush In" by Ingrid Michaelson, the trailer is all winsome glances, sad goodbyes and passionate embraces. What we don't see a lot of is Jennifer Lawrence, who appears in a supporting role. Judging by the preview, this will be an intimate and very sad affair.

The film opens on October 28th. Do you think it will be an awards contender given its fall placement?
