|Felicity Jones at Sundance Film Festival|
Congratulations to Paramount Pictures on their latest acquisition at Park City's Sundance Film Festival. Like Crazy was awarded the Grand Jury Prize of Best Drama this year. As you might remember, the Film is about a British Girl (Felicity Jones) who falls in love with an American (Anton Yelchin), but must return back to the U.K. after her VISA expires.
Andrew Barker at Variety has called Like Crazy an "exquisite, beautifully acted gem" and The Hollywood Reporter's John DeFore calls it a "deeply-felt love tale". Crossing fingers they save this one until TIFF 2010. Would love this to premiere in Toronto in September!
Recent Oscar Best Picture nominees to win the Prize include Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire and Winter's Bone. Coincidentally Jennifer Lawrence, who was nominated for an Oscar this year for Winter's Bone, also stars in Like Crazy.
