Forced to entertain a French exchange student for the weekend I racked my brains trying to think of anything I could do that wouldn’t involve much talking. Then it hit me. The cinema. The perfect place to hide in the dark with the perfect excuse to avoid conversation. There aren’t many films out at the moment which are light hearted a jovial and then best thing I could find with a plot line that wasn’t too complex for my exchange and I was ‘Like Crazy’. I had assumed that this film was a light hearted chick flick, but I was wrong. I was surprised to find that Like Crazy is actually quite an emotional romantic drama.
The story follows two college students, Jacob and Anna, who fall in love, but face a seemingly insurmountable problem as Anna is actually a British student studying on an American Visa. When the time comes for Anna to return to the UK, she decides that she cannot bear to part with Jacob and so she violates the terms of her Visa rendering it impossible for her to re-enter the US. This is a truly heart-breaking love story of two young people desperate to stay together despite the miles and miles of ocean between them.VIEW STORY »
