I'm pretty sure I've already told you that I love "500 Days of Summer". So today I spent half of my time searching for photos,quotes and songs from the movie.
This is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, New Jersey, grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he met the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie ‘The Graduate’. The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, Michigan, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her parents’ marriage she’d only loved two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and feel nothing. Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront—this is not a love story.”
" Did you ever do this, you think back on all the times you've had with someone and you just replay it in your head over and over again and you look for those first signs of trouble?"
" I hate her crooked teeth. I hate her 1960s haircut. I hate her knobby knees. I hate her cockroach-shaped splotch on her neck. I hate the way she smacks her lips before she talks. I hate the way she sounds when she laughs."
- Nobody loves Ringo Starr.
- That's what I love about him."
What a great scene that was! I sure hope I've convinced at least one of you to watch the movie. It was so beautifully written and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel were chosen so well that I couldn't imagine anyone else playing Summer or Tom.
My rating: 9/10
