2011, Paramount Vantage, 90 min, USA, Dir: Drake Doremus

Aspiring furniture designer Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and poetry-writing British exchange student Anna (Felicity Jones) meet at a Los Angeles university and, after a few blushingly sincere flirtations and a date, become a couple. When Anna overstays her Visa tenure in the country, and is barred from entry back into the U.S. after returning home from a family visit in the U.K., the young lovers find themselves suddenly thrown into a long-distance, cross-continental relationship, and navigating all the heart-aching complications that go along with it. With Jennifer Lawrence. The Grand Jury Prize winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. “An exquisite, beautifully acted gem of a film.” -Variety
