Philly Cinefest – Day 1


(500) Days of Summer – Marc Webb – USA

This is a nice little romantic comedy that is anchored by some fresh writing, solid performances, excellent direction, and a great soundtrack. The story and situations might not be anything new, but the film has the courage to not take the easy way out and the talent of all involved elevate it to something more substantial than your average date movie.

  1. It’s hard to remain objective when you are at an opening night film because of all the energy in the air, but I enjoyed it a lot. I probably would have enjoyed it watching it at home as well, but maybe not as much.
