REVIEW: LIKE CRAZY
Called “crazily inventive and totally irresistible” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), the touching, beautiful and romantic drama LIKE CRAZY debuts March 6, 2012 on Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet™, for Digital Download and On Demand from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Director Drake Doremus expertly captures the thrilling exuberance and heartbreaking fragility of first love in “the rare love story that honestly conveys the giddy joys and sorrows of two people besotted with each other” (Claudia Puig, USA Today). Featuring “star-making performances” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times) by the incandescent Felicity Jones—who was given Breakthrough Awards by the National Board of Review and the Gotham Awards, as well as a Special Jury Prize at Sundance for her performance—and the terrifically earnest Anton Yelchin—who received a Spotlight Award at the Hollywood Film Festival and Special Recognition for a Breakthrough Performance at the Hamptons International Film Festival— LIKE CRAZY explores how a young couple faces the very real challenges of being apart…and of being together.

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. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and of the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress for Felicity Jones, Like Crazy depicts both the hopefulness and the heartbreak of love.
