A love story is both a physical and emotional tale, one that can be deeply personal and heartbreaking for an audience to experience. Director Drake Doremus' film Like Crazy beautifully illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is devastating. When a British college student (Felicity Jones) falls for her American classmate (Anton Yelchin) they embark on a passionate and life-changing journey only to be separated when she violates the terms of her visa. Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. -- (C)… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The couple's story is related through small, true-to-life details that paint an unidealized portrait of love - the euphoria, the sadness, and everything in between."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"It's not exactly Casablanca, but times have changed."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
" uneven endeavor from a promising new filmmaker..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Felicity Jones will break your heart at least once"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Like Crazy manages to capture the elusive whimsy of first love, only to beat it to death with a tedious on again/off again love story and two main characters obstinately selfish and mundane."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"It's imperative for director and co-writer Drake Doremus to color the film with a great deal of blossoming-love sparkle right off the bat, and he does just that."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"While the film is often quite moving, it's also at times frustrating; people in love, we realize, aren't always as fascinating to the rest of us as they are to each other."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"I'll admit that my heart broke a little by film's end, as the camera rested on Yelchin and Jones's faraway looks and Stars' sublime "Dead Hearts" flooded the soundtrack."
‑ Matthew Connolly, Film Comment Magazine
""Are you a romantic or a realist? Like Crazy is the rare romantic drama made for both.""
‑ Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia)
"This likeable low budget American indi is kept fresh by Yelchin and Jones who are endearing as the star-crossed lovers."
‑ Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy
"Doremus delivers a tightly focused film that's all the more impressive for being improvised."
‑ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"What could have come off as stilted and artificial is instead genuine and natural."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"A well-made film with two strong leads that never fully appreciates the romance at its core."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"The performances from Yelchin and Jones are admirable, but they just don't have much to work with as their characters are underwritten and underdeveloped."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"It's more like a series of sentimental greeting cards suitable at differing stages of a relationship, from sparkling first love to broken relationship to marriage and out of it ... The screenplay is rather formless and for the most part, tedious."
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
