"Like Crazy"

Paramount Vantage has officially scheduled a release date for Sundance winner Like Crazy.

The well-received Like Crazy, which stars Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence, will be in limited release Friday, Oct. 28.

Jones was awarded a special jury award for acting at Sundance for her performance. The 21-year-old Yelchin said in an interview with THR at Sundance that the improvisation done in the film was "magical."

The romantic drama, which won the grand jury prize for U.S. dramatic film at this year’s festival, revolves around two college students -- one American (Yelchin) and the other British (Jones) -- who meet in Los Angeles and fall in love. It was the first film to be bought during the Park City-set fest, with Paramount and Indian Paintbrush paying $4 million to release the Drake Doremus-directed film worldwide.
