500 Days of Summer

three and a half stars out of five A refreshing twist on the romcom genre; very likeable, bittersweet with very good central performances.
Gordon-Levitt’s ex-obsessed Tom is pretty believable, but Summer’s character (Deschanel doing well with not a lot) is a bit sketchy & it was difficult to relate to her much at all.

Really liked the flashbacks where Tom finally realises that the signs of Summer’s lack of commitment to him were there all along. And the ending, where he eventually understands that Summer may not be the only, or even the best, season.
