500 Days Of Summer

Movie Love: 500 Days Of Summer

Yes, I do love 500 Days of Summer. You’d think that the title is purely speaking about the season, but when you get to the story, it’s really all about the girl, Summer Finn, the sun in Tom Hansen’s life.

There are many reasons why this film is close to my heart. One of the biggest is probably the fact that I am seeing myself in Tom. The two Smiths’ songs in this movie could’ve been borrowed from my life’s soundtrack (or the other way around).

When they broke up and Tom fell in the state of depression, it was Rachel, his younger sister who helped him to get over some of the pain. I’m reminded of Holden Caulfield and his sister Phoebe in Catcher in the Rye.

I love being reminded that there is such a thing as true love. Not that I don’t believe it. But it’s nice to be often reminded. I am envious of Summer’s strength and spontaneity. And, as you might have guessed, I do like her wardrobe.
