  • When Tom, a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend summer dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days "together" to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.

  • This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be -- It's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will.

Roundtable discussion with 500 Days of Summer’s Gordon-Levitt, Deschanel and director Marc Webb

Sure, there’s an over arching whimsical tone to the movie, and yeah, there’s even a choreographed dance scene, but when you’re in love, or think you are, everything seems that way. The Daily Texan sat down with Gordon-Levitt, Deschanel and director Marc Webb for a roundtable discussion about the film.

DT: Music plays a huge role in the film. The two characters first meet over a Smiths song, and every scene is carefully planned, music-wise. Tell me about that.

Marc Webb: If you just look at how big music plays a part in your life, it’s a no-brainer that it should play a huge role in the film.

Private Q & A with Marc Webb

A reader was at the private Q & A with Marc Webb when we stopped by the Film School at Florida State University.

Joey, a graduate from FSU, was at the private session and posted some details from the discussion with 500 Days of Summer director, Marc Webb on his blog.

Webb made it his mission to prove to the studio that they would be foolish not to make (500 Days of Summer). He spent three months and a lot of his own money to create storyboards, concept drawings, and a now famous scroll. The film is told out of sequence, and this scroll is an outline of the events in the script laid out on a timeline plotting their 500 day relationship in chronological order. Needless to say, the presentation blew everyone away.

Thanks, Joey, for sending this in!
