(500) Days of Summer

Rated PG-13 95 min. 2009

This Marc Webb-directed film turns the romantic comedy genre on its head. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Tom Hansen, a hopeless dreamer so convinced of destined love that he falls head over heels with the titular Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel) despite the fact that she explicitly warns him she’s not interested in a relationship. Structurally inventive in so many indie-slanted ways, Tom and Summer’s story shifts back and forth over the course of their romance, its highs, its lulls, its collapse. The delusions we tell ourselves about love are, it turns out, every bit as dangerous as the emotion. The result of all this is a hilarious rollercoaster ride that feels honest even in its eccentricities (95 min.).
