Like Crazy


89 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

English bird Anna (Felicity Jones, sweet, vulnerable, resilient) and Yankee Jacob (Anton Yelchin, simple, frustrating) fall hard for each other just before graduating college in California. Anna overstays her visa to lie around in bed with Jacob all summer then can’t get back into the country after a spell in her homeland. What follows is the strain of long-distance relations and bad timing, and it’s painful to watch, because you know what’s coming. There is no pain like the lasting sting of regret, of what’s been lost and cannot be retrieved, and the tension between the young, infatuated couple here is palpable. For a relationship drama, Like Crazy is refreshingly provocative, and by smartly avoiding a cloying ending, it’s about as real as young love gets. (GRANT BRISSEY)
