(500) Days of Summer

Playing with chronology in the way that Memento and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind did, this clever romantic comedy shows us the rise and fall of a relationship between a cynical young woman (Zooey Deschanel) and a hopeful young man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). By restructuring the timeframe and running the entire story out of traditional rom-com order, however, meet-cutes and breakups coexist in one seamless flow. In some ways, it's a subtle tweak. In others, it adds up to one terribly inventive look at the ups and downs of love. 95 minutes PG-13.
