A love story is both a physical and emotional tale, one that can be deeply personal and heartbreaking for an audience to experience.

Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and of the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress for Felicity Jones, Like Crazy depicts both the hopefulness and the heartbreak of love.
This movie is about the reality of going through a long-distance relationships. It's amazing and heartbreaking at the same time.The happiness they feel when they are together and the sadness and loneliness when they are apart. And the decision they agreed on while living apart. It didn't feel like watching a movie for me because the characters, the story , the lines, the heartaches and sadness  were like the real thing. It may be boring to some but i just loved this movie.


Anna: [on the phone with Jacob] I just have to say one thing and it's really important that you just listen to me. I just... It doesn't feel like this, this thing is gonna go away, it's always there. I can't... I can't get on with my life. 

Anna: I just don't want you to feel like you're not living your life properly when you are not with me.

I've been kind of back and forth on seeing this movie. It'll probably be a Netflix pick.
