Synopsis: After it looks as if she's left his life for good this time, Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) reflects back on the just over one year that he knew Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel). Despite being physically average in almost every respect, Summer had always attracted the attention of men, Tom included. For Tom, it was love at first sight when she walked into the greeting card company where he worked, she the new administrative assistant. Soon, Tom knew that Summer was the woman with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life. Although Summer did not believe in relationships or boyfriends - in her assertion, real life will always ultimately get in the way - Tom and Summer became more than just friends.
Unique Selling Point: When you thought “(500) Days of Summer” was just another rom-com, you’re wrong. The way this story is told is unique and that makes it inventive, funny and true.
Most Valuable Player: Screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, for this originally told story.
Best Moment: The expectations versus reality scene, with the split screen, is nothing like I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing.
