There are so few good love stories, I could not resist writing about this one. It may be gone from the theaters now, but the DVD is surely on its way. Too late to post it on Crimespree Cinema so here it is.
A British student ignores her student visa regulations when she falls in love with an American student one summer, and this precipitates a world of trouble for them both.
They can't seem to find long-term happiness with each other or with anyone else. They are locked in that summer romance, can't see past it.
There is scarcely a false note in this sad little Valentine. Every character is shown to their best advantage, including the parents and other lovers. How often does this happen?
Starring Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlie Bewley, Alex Kingston and Oliver Muirhead.
Directed by Drake Doremus, who seems to have come out of nowhere to do this great little movie.
What love story do you find satisfying? Movie or book or TV?
