Oliver Muirhead's hobby in the film was making bread which he does in real life. See more »
When Anna sticks her presentation paper under the windshield wiper of Jacob's car for the second time and walks away, it is stuck with a tiny corner towards the middle of the wiper. In the next close-up shot the paper is stuck with a much bigger corner under its tip. See more »
Don't let it's indie roots fool you. Like Crazy is a nostalgic love story of people who know what they want but don't know how to get it.
The acting is superb. Yelchin and Jones have chemistry and they play it across the board. You will smile, laugh, cry, and hold your breath as these two characters waltz in and out of each others' lives. Jennifer Lawrence and Charlie Bewley also deliver great performances.
The thing that sets Like Crazy apart is the fact that it doesn't try to be anything than an honest love story. It doesn't play up stereotypes. It doesn't beat out the indie clichés. The dialogue is naturally paced and feels richly authentic. The subtext is dramatic.
This film is worth every dollar and dime in my mind. If you get the chance, go see it. Take friends who want to share the fun of a good film.
Like Crazy is a fantastic watch and a fresh take on everything you thought you knew about indie romance.
