Ever been in love with a person that hasn’t expressed the equal feelings for you, your left hanging on hoping for a chance? Well then this is the perfect slice of entertainment for you. At the first exposure of Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel), Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has fallen for what he summarizes as the girl of his dreams, sadly she rejects these feelings being complicated to apprehend and calmly modifies the direction of the two into a bit of cat and mouse, everything slowly cascades down hill which bewilders young Toms mind.
I didn’t enter this film with grand hopes my only expectations were for the actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt as his been present in such astounding projects as The Lookout and Brick which are both in my world neglected classics for our generation. His acting I feel has elevated to a new range as he is accompanied by the pleasant Zooey Deschanel (Surf’s Up, Almost Famous). For me these two combined makes for an un beatable compound as they struggle their ways through the ups and downs of human emotions.
We embrace Tom mostly scratching his head and challenging the theory of love during the entirety of the film, supplying us with some real life facts and thoughts. While Summer on the other hand teas fully tip toes her way out of trouble by representing the girl you just can’t quite understand.
