2010 marked my first year attending Sundance. There, I was introduced to two people who will, without a doubt, shine in cinema. Those two are actress Jennifer Lawrence (WINTER'S BONE) and co-writer/director Drake Doremus (DOUCHEBAG).

Lawrence has a role in Doremus' new film, LIKE CRAZY, which will be screening at Sundance 2011. In LIKE CRAZY, a young man and woman fall in love for the first time after meeting in college in Los Angeles. Their names are Jacob and Anna, played by Anton Yelchin (TERMINATOR: SALVATION) and Felicity Jones (BRIDESHEAD REVISITED). All seems well until Anna has to go back to London and their love is put through the long distance test. I'm not sure what type of character Lawrence will be playing just yet, but I'll update as soon as I know.

Hit the break for the official synopsis and another photo from the film. LIKE CRAZY premieres on Saturday, January 22nd, 2011.

Official Synopsis:
Like Crazy is a film from and about the heart. Jacob, an American, and Anna, who is British, meet at college in Los Angeles and fall madly in love. It’s the purest kind of romance—they’re each other’s first significant attachment. When Anna returns to London, the couple is forced into a long-distance relationship. Their perfect love is tested, and youth, trust, and geography become their biggest enemies.

Taking a complete tonal departure from his last film, Douchebag, which screened at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, cowriter/director Drake Doremus poetically reveals the intimate details and daily struggles of Jacob and Anna’s love affair as it stretches between time and distance and changes course. Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones are enthralling in their sweetness and honesty as the young couple. An original, contemplative look at first love, Like Crazy strikes a universal chord as it explores the bittersweet beauty and impermanence of relationships.
