    Boy meets girl
    Boy falls in love
    Girl doesn't

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Marc Webb
    Wirtten by: Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber
    Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Clark Gregg, Minka Kelly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Rachel Boston, Geoffrey Arend, Chloe Moritz
    Producers: Jessica Tuchinsky, Mary Waters, Steven Wolfe, Mason Novick

  • 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.

    Release Date: July 17, 2009

  2. I know people don’t always trust film critics, but you have to…have to trust me on this one. See this movie at all costs. It. Is. That. Good. I have pledged myself to be a “500 Days” evangelist.

  6. After seeing the trailer, there was no way I could miss this movie. Just saw it at the Century in Evanston (Chicago area). Absolutely marvelous! I’m already anxiously awaiting the chance to add it to my movie collection. (Blu-Ray, please?)

  11. Where exactly is the bench that Tom showed Summer the architecture designs at? and how will I be able to get there? The one right under the AT&T building (recall that?) The place where Summer went to right after she got married, to find Tom.

  12. In reply to Brandon Fibbs.
    I know what you mean. Film critics say all different and a lot of things are subjective, but in this case THANK GOD they are right :) x
