500 Days of Summer - REVIEW

Film of the Day #13

This is a story of boy meets girl; however this is not a love story. 500 Days of Summer is a clever, non-formulaic antidote to your average Hollywood romcom.  Director Marc Webb captures a refreshingly honest and utterly charming off beat movie that charts the rise and fall of a relationship with heart, soul and a recognition that it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. An endearing, well acted film that takes a conventional premise and turns it into something wonderfully unconventional.
