(500) Days of Summer

2009 Drama | Romance | Comedy

Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't. This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be--it's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will. When Tom, a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend Summer dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days "together" to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.

500 Days Of Summer

A great movie is something special, isn't it? A great movie can lift falling spirits, make your whole weekend and convince you that life isn't all that bad. It can make you wish that you were friends with the characters. A great movie gives you the same feelings when you meet someone new: there's a warm fuzzy sensation in your stomach, you want to tell your friends all about it and you can't wait to see it again - 500 Days Of Summer is that movie. "You should know this is not a love story," goes the opening Wes Anderson-like narration. It could have fooled me.
