“Enchantingly original and romantic.” “A feat of star acting, and it helps make (500) Days not just bitter or sweet but everything in between.” “Like a blast of romantic oxygen.” “Sublimely smart-sexy-joyful-sad.” “Seriously funny and touching.” “This knockout of a movie expertly blends bliss and the blues.” “Hilarious and heartfelt.” “This sweet, sizzling movie shows how love hurts and heals.” “Charming and refreshingly candid.” “Winningly seductive and unexpectedly lovely.”
Just a sampling of comments from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times about (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, the year’s most anticipated indie romantic comedy that finally hits Central Florida and opens at Enzian tomorrow (Friday the 31st). The film that came thisclose to being the Opening Night Film at this year’s Florida Film Festival is what one could call a “postmodern” love story or “anti-romantic” comedy–more of a story about love than an actual love story. Its MEMENTO-like structure and random flipbook style of flash-forwards and flashbacks through a year-and-a-half long relationship magically create a truly kaleidoscopic portrait of why it’s so hard to make sense of love. The excellent Joseph Gordon-Levitt and adorable Zooey Deschanel have never been better, and the film is both extremely witty and genuinely funny.
Advance tickets may be the way to go on this one. Enjoy!
