Like Crazy

So, I was looking for a nice movie just to get me through this night and this movie captured my senses. I’ve always been a self proclaimed hopeless romantic and I adore romantic films. When I saw this, I hurriedly browsed for it’s trailer and watched it on youtube. The music and the fact that Jennifer Lawrence was there, convinced me that I should watch it.

While watching it, I googled again and found a lot of good reviews about the movie. It was about a boy and a girl who fell in love with each other but the twist is that he’s American, she’s British, she came to the USA for her studies, her visa expired, she stayed and it didn’t matter how it could be problematic… then, she’s expulsed and sent back to the UK. That’s the start of their struggle with the heartaches of long-distance relationships.

A simple plot but the movie showed the reality of love, of being in love. Don’t get me wrong fairytales and happy endings are awesome but it’s good to not lose sight of reality. I was actually sobbing and crying while watching some heartbreaking parts. =/

“I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it’s the halves that halve you in half. I didn’t know, don’t know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.”
