There is something irresistible that lies deep within the piercing blue eyes of Zooey Deschanel and the playfully coy smile of Joesph Gordon-Levitt. Falling in love with either of these characteristics seems like a natural occurrence, an inevitable progression. But remember folks, this isn't a love story.
Or so the trailer for their new movie 500 Days of Summer woefully points out.First comes Tom. Fueled by his undying affection for melodic brit rock and the need to find a love comparable to such iconic and love-struck tunes, he meets Summer. A recent Michigan transplant, Summer harbors an affinity for high-waisted pants, Belle & Sebastian lyrics and for playing the "friend" card.
She appears to be the answer, his perfect lyrical comparison. As they adventure around downtown LA in ways you rarely see captured on film, it's absolutely endearing, beautiful and wait for it, heartbreaking.
Whether you're a Tom or a Summer, there is something universally relatable about their journey.
