Storyline

Anna and Jacob fall instantly in love when they meet as students at an L.A. university. But Anna is British and when graduation approaches, Anna decides to stay and violate her student visa rather than returning to England. After a visit home, she is then unable to return to the United States. While fighting customs and immigration battles, Anna and Jacob must decide if their relationship is worth the distance and the hardship. Written by napierslogs

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.

"It's hard to keep stopping and starting"
5 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like Crazy isn't a perfect film, but it's a refreshingly personal one. Though it has a questionable screenplay and some awkward editing, the genuine emotion in every scene is palpable. Yelchin and Jones give the film their all: their romance is believable yet they bravely portray their flaws as well - perhaps so that we can relate to them better, so we can find ourselves in their mistakes and learn from their downfalls.

There are some issues - the editing can be choppy, some lines sound like they came from a 7th grader, and the film isn't nearly as long as it should be. It's hard to be sad about their separation when they're only separated for 5 minutes at a time. In spite of the occasional clunkiness, however, the film works because of the commitment to the characters, the genuine romance, and the tearjerkingly beautiful moments of pure, human emotion.
