You'll be crazy for Like Crazy

You don't have to be a film buff to have heard about the Sundance Film Festival, one of the biggest and most prestigious film festivals who celebrated its 27th annual competition on Jan. 20 - 30, 2011.

One film in particular made the audience at January's festival

go crazy – and is, ironically enough, entitled Like Crazy.

The film, that features newcomers Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin, left the festival with the Grand Jury Prize for Best Drama as well as for Best Actress (Jones) under its belt.

Never before did I believe any movie could take away The Notebook's prestigious title

of greatest love story of all time, but writer/director Drake Doremus gives Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling a run for their money.

Like Crazy is indeed a love story that will drive you crazy as you are perched on the edge of your seats begging to know what happens next.

Jones plays Anna, a British exchange student who falls for Yelchin's character Jacob when she is studying in America.

Choosing to overstay her visa to be with him, she is banned from returning to his country and their love is separated by not only thousands of miles but also the law. This movie truly exemplifies love has no boundaries.

It turns out that the brilliant Doremus doesn't exactly let us know what happens next.

The cliffhanger. The cliché cliffhanger ending that drives the audience crazy. But for Like Crazy, it works. It doesn't drive you quite as crazy as you would think because you find yourself falling for the characters just as they have fallen for each other.

In short, you would be absolutely

crazy not to check out this film for yourself when it is released Nov. 18, 2011.
