Rated PG-13

Drama, Romance
Two 20-somethings meet in college and fall in love. Happens all the time. So that much is almost a prologue in Like Crazy, a movie that, if it finds much of an audience, will convert Anton Yelchin and particularly Felicity Jones into stars. There’s nothing else to look at, frankly. At least one of them is in every scene, and both usually are. The perspective of the film—which covers a relationship that probably gets too serious too soon, and slowly falls apart despite trans-Atlantic efforts to save it—never favors one character over another. Instead, both are held accountable for the relationship’s troubles. Having said that, there’s enough room for interpretation that it could just as easily be nobody’s fault. Spare and wide-eyed, Like Crazy is a terrific examination of young love with some unexpectedly gutsy performances.
