Drama Romantic - This is a slow and talky independent romantic drama aimed at young adults. This is basically a two-person show for Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones. Sex and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids.
The film begins when Anna and Jacob are college students. He's a talented young
designer from Los Angeles; she's a gifted writer from London - but after Anna's
makes the nervy first move, they seem to connect at the purest level. When
they're together, they feel like anything is possible. But when Anna overstays
her American visa, breaking the rules of 21st Century travel, she unwittingly
drops a wall between them. Forced by law to return to London while Jacob remains
in L.A., they discover the perils of long-distance relationships. Their lives
become wrapped up in anxious text messages, missed phone calls and ecstatic
reunions that turn to bittersweet departures.
They also begin to change. Jacob's furniture design business takes off in L.A.
Anna is promoted to Junior Editor in London. Jacob seeks solace with his
assistant, Sam (Jennifer Lawrence) and Anna has a fling with her neighbor Simon
(Charlie Bewley.) Yet every time they are inevitably pulled apart - by
circumstance, by Homeland Security, by the clash of inexplicable emotions --
something keeps luring them back together, something they cannot seem to hold on
to, yet cannot live without.
