Sundance hit “Like Crazy” posts poetic first trailer – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s rare that you interview a director and one of the things they’d like to talk about is someone else’s film.

Yet when I sat down with Jodie Foster earlier this year to speak with her about “The Beaver,” she eventually asked me if I’d seen her young co-stars – the supremely talented Jennifer Lawrence and Anton Yelchin – in the Sundance winner “Like Crazy.” Foster raved about their performances, and said the film needs to be on people’s radars when it reaches theaters later this year.

Now that we’ve seen the trailer, we understand Foster’s enthusiasm.

Drake Doremus’ relationship drama swirls around two students – one British, one American – who are separated by oceans and paperwork after she’s banned from the States for overstaying her visa. Yelchin plays the lovelorn student alongside Felicity Jones. The picture won the Grand Jury Prize and a Best Actress trophy for Jones at Sundance. It’s currently gearing up for a fall festival run in hopes of drumming up awareness for what looks like a subtle, tender, poetic modern romance.

The trailer is up on Apple’s site. We’ve also embedded it below. “Like Crazy” will open wider on Oct. 28, and something tells me we’ll be tracking its progress through the awards season right here on HollywoodNews.com’s Awards Alley.
