(500) Days of Summer

17 Apr


Writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber create an original romantic comedy that is not a love story, but a story about love. The familiar tale of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, and girl breaks up with boy for no reason and boy loses it. The indie hit (500) Days of Summer employs a nonlinear approach to capture those moments we want to remember and the others we cannot forget. The film jumps from Day 108 to Day 7 seamlessly because it doesn’t need to show us everyday; just the important ones. Director Marc Webb has a knack for the letting the story unfold while watching the relationship soar only to unravel at the same time.

The levity generated from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel’s performances is a match made in heaven. Their chemistry together makes them one of the iconic couples of the 21st century. I would love to see a 500 Days of Autumn.
