Consensus: It has the schmaltzy trappings of my romantic films, but Like Crazy allows its characters to express themselves beyond dialogue, crafting a true, intimate study.

Eric D. Snider

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.

Doremus delivers a tightly focused film that's all the more impressive for being improvised.

Cute, heartfelt, emotional. Light enough for a date night, short enough to survive the onslaught of feelings.
