(500) Days of Summer quite simply is the near-perfect anti-romance, yet romantic movie.
This is not a love story, it is a story about love; so the movie’s tagline quips.
& it exceeded my already-brimming expectations by a mile. Make that ten. Nah, a million miles.
Left me all fuzzy, warm, & humbled by its simple charm.
& Zooey Deschanel? Simply perfect. The only Summer imaginable.
Okay, I said near-perfect. So there was one slight disappointment. Autumn.
A cameo from Rachel McAdams or Amy Adams as Autumn would have made my day.
