500 days of summer

I know I’m certainly not the first to rave about this film, but I saw it three days ago and I’m still smiling just thinking about it… if you haven’t heard anything about it, here’s a little sneak preview:

You already know that I love pretty much everything about Zooey, and this movie has made me love her even more. She is so great in the role of Summer, and her personal style (which I highly admire) is definitely reflected in Summer’s style.

I am slightly obsessed with this peacock-print dress she’s wearing in the dinner party scene.

The story is cute and funny and totally believable. I found myself laughing or smiling quite often in the theatre. People clapped when it was over (for the record, I hate when people clap in a movie theatre [it’s not like the stars of the movie can hear your applause?] but I thought you should know that it was, indeed, applause-worthy to some people).

If you aren’t convinced yet that you need to see this movie, let me tell you that Zooey also sings in it.

And Joseph Gordon-Levitt is absolutely perfect and adorable in the role of Tom.

And you’ll never listen to “You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall & Oates the same way ever again.

  1. ZOMG I love Zooey D. she's incredibly amazing and I really want to see this movie!
    Also, funny and random, but I am totally in the middle of designing a peacock themed invite! What are the chances of that!

  2. How funny, I'm more drawn to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's wardrobe! But I tend to prefer boyish clothes to girly stuff. :) Plus I love wearing skinny ties and vests, even though Rob thinks it makes me look like a lesbian.

    I got a Fox Searchlight email yesterday that featured this movie:

    I can't wait to see it!
