(500) Days of Summer, 2009.
Directed by Marc Webb.
Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn’t.
(500) Days of Summer is a nice little film I recommend to all my friends simply by calling it ‘a lad’s chick flick’. When young men hear the words ‘chick flick’ we all groan, and we all know the feeling of having to sit through them with the girlfriend, however(500) Days of Summer offers a slightly different twist on the genre. It’s from the man’s perspective and this is why I’ll always refer to it as a ‘lad’s chick flick’.
Unlike it’s female-aimed counterparts, this film focuses as much on the break-up as the getting together, and with some clever editing and smart storytelling, it ensures you never forget that it’s not a love story, »
