      I had first been interested in the 2009 film, 500 Days of Summer, because one of its main actors (Zooey Deschannel) has always impressed me in other films that she has done. However, her character Summer did little less then annoy and disappoint me. I constantly felt sorry for Summer’s male friend Tom, who fell in love with her right away and seemed to be dragged along on a leash of on again off again affection.

      The movie is constantly going back and forth to past and present times where Tom is showing how he came to fall in love with Summer, and the after math of how she used him. I say used him, only because that is exactly what it seemed that Summer did. She had made


      it clear to Tom that she had no interest in seeking out a relationship, yet she would hold his hands, sleep in his bed, and give him sweet kisses that would lead anyone to believe that there was some sort affection running through the both of them. When Summer up and tells Tom that she doesn’t want to see him anymore, quits the job that the two of them work at, and walk out of his life, he is quite distressed. When he meets her again on a train on the way to a party that the both of them are going to, she again bats her eyelashes, dances with him and rekindles that old flame that Tom never really did stop feeling for her. She invites him ...

      • to a party she is having at her apartment, and upon arriving to this party, Tom is fantasizing that this is going to be the moment where he and Summer are going to be together. Low and behold to him, the party is an engagement party….Summer’s engagement party. It is later brought to his attention that Summer met a man in a bakery and fell in love with him instantly, making her forget about all of her conceptions about relationships. Tom doesn’t understand, as he rightly shouldn’t since his entire relationship with Summer made little if any sense.

        There is however a silver lining for Tom, who meets a girl at the end of the film while attending an interview for a position he desperately wants in the architecture.

        She is nothing like Summer and he sees a potential for something more, so makes a move and asks her out, she accepts and it is left up to the viewers imagination to wonder what will happen next. Coincidentally her name is Autumn.

        This film really made me disappointed, especially the character of Summer. I felt the she lead Tom on throughout the entire film, and left him almost broken and heart sick for her. She could have been honest with him and stuck to her word that she didn’t want a relationship. But to play with him the way she did was cruel. Her engagement party was even crueler, she should have been honest and told him that it was her engagement party especially since she knew of his feelings for her.
