Quotes

Anna: It's someone that is very close to me and he's been quite an inspiration in my life. And i almost through my writing i wanted to give something back.
Liz: Yeah, when i was reading it just made me think about the fact when i was working in NY, my husband was in LA, so he was driving across country. So, on the way over he would take all these pictures of himself and the dog at varies places.

30 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

This film was beautiful. I saw it at the Sundance Film Festival and fell in love with it Like Crazy. Everything from the acting, to the cinematography, to the story line was amazing. And to think it was shot on the Canon 7D is incredible. I saw 14 films at Sundance and this was my favorite film in the festival. During the Q&A after the film the director made it clear that this film is about the true story of his own relationship with a girl. I would recommend this film to people who have experienced a long distant relationship and to teenage/young adult audiences. This film is the Winner of the U.S. Dramatic Competition Grand Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. I think it deserved this prize. This film made me feel all sorts of different emotions. This film really is a beautiful story and I am excited to see it coming out in theaters.
