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. I'm totally sad that the release is "limited". Limited means "won't come within 300 miles of me" most of the time. Off to Netflix I go... to "Save" it for later viewing...

  3. 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!
