500 Days Of Summer (2009) is a quirky romantic indie drama starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel.
I went into this movie thinking it would be a fluffy rom-com but its actually quite a bit darker then expected. Director Marc Webb uses poptastic music and a jumbled storyline to great effect.
Deschanel is her usual beautiful and charming self but its Gordon-Levitt who makes this movie work. His performance is charismatic and compelling and will surely propel him onto bigger leading roles.
Director Marc Webb landed the new Spider-Man reboot from the success of this movie. Its quirky, fun and unexpectedly dramatic.
