Like Crazy (2011)-Anton Yelchin , Felicity Jones , Jennifer Lawrence ,Charlie Bewley
But regardless you really can't deny the acting chops of the cast , both Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones were superb in this film. The supporting cast led by Jennifer Lawrence was also spot on. The sad part is how dragging the story is , I was almost bored with some parts , and although you do feel the love and warmth of the two characters , they can be annoying , the movie doesn't really give us that strong sense of romance . I mean I could see that they are in love , but I really can't get why. Where did that strong connection come from? I mean is go-karting and a chair really mean that much? Or maybe they're trying to project realism because in real life couples tend to romanticize mundane stuff with personal meaning. If that were the case they should have gone more into that stuff , focused on that , and showed why this mundane things were able to build a strong connection between those two , hey it's been done before in other great movies of the same genre like Before Sunrise and its sequels .... Hey this film almost had that recipe of being a great romance , even with its low budget . It just falls short , it needed more substance , show how that love grew , that part really felt hurried, like crazy.
