"This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story."
-(500) Days of Summer
The reason I watched this movie was because I heard it was good (and funny) from my former AP Lit teacher (who I'd like to convince to get a deviantART, lol) and some of the kids while they talked about it in class last year. What I like about it is that it's more than just a romantic comedy, and it actually has a thoughtful story to it (plus it's funny). So this time I opted to do a more serious fan art about Tom's coming of age story of becoming a man.
I've only seen the movie once so far (plus the commentary, which was pretty interesting at some points), but I'd like to see it again to connect some more dots of the non-sequential storyline and other things
This might sound random, but I really liked the lighting and colors they used in the film, too
I also think it's interesting how the movie is told from Tom's perspective, so not everything shown is really true ^.^
