Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zoey Deschanel, Geoffrey Arend
Summer Finn (Deschanel) is the average next door girl with average looks and an almost average personality. Yet, there is something inside her that attracts each and everyone around her. Whatever she does and wherever she goes, there is always a mass of people doing the exact same thing behind her. Tom (Gordon-Levitt) is an architect who is working as a cartoonist in a greeting card manufacturing company. When Summer joins the company as the bosses assistant, Tom falls in love. Summer and Tom get along as good friends and things start to progress rapidly when suddenly Summer mentions that she is not looking at anything serious but its too late since Tom already is. The movie might appear to be the average run-of-the-mill love story but it actually isn't. Its less of a fictional romance and more of a practical love story which almost every other person experiences. Even though the plot might not be as interesting, the form in which the movie is narrated with the constant back and forth in time has made it unique and interesting. Its this back-and-forth formula which can blow your mind away and the vast effort that might have gone behind it to give a positive outcome should be appreciated. Good performances coupled with a good plot execution has made this a great movie for lovers to watch together.
