500 Days of Summer (2009)

Director: Marc Webb

Stars: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Geoffrey Arend, Chloë Grace Moretz

Tom, greeting-card writer and hopeless romantic, is caught completely off-guard when his girlfriend, Summer, suddenly dumps him. He reflects on their 500 days together to try to figure out where their love affair went sour, and in doing so, Tom rediscovers his true passions in life.

I just did not have hopes for this movie at all. I thought it was going to be some thrown together young adult love story. I was just wrong on this one. It was actually really good to watch. The movie let you know right at the beginning what it was. It was a basically a break up movie. That is something that is rarely done. Most movie are at least a type of a love story, but this movie is about love falling apart.

Watching the movie they really do seem like they are a couple. You see the two of them doing the things that couples do when they are out in public and alone. Those scenes are really sweet. It makes you long for that if you are alone, or know the feeling if you are in a relationship.

The movie itself is really well made. The acting is spot on. They both are great in their roles. The best part of the movie was the music. It was awesome. It is a collection of 90's indie bands, and yes they were at the time. This is a really good movie to sit and watch. Just do not let it get to you. You are watching someone slowly getting their heart broke. Enjoy.
