New ‘Like Crazy’ Trailer Depicts a Legitimate Love Story

Poetry sharing. Beach running. Under-the-covers conversing. Phone sobbing. Voiceover ruminating.

This trailer reminds me of the reasons why all of these things became cliche in the first place: when done well, with substance, full characters, a sincere backdrop of love and pain and confusion and sadness, they are actually intensely powerful. And that’s just what Like Crazy looks to be.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
