Not only was “Like Crazy” one of my favorite films of the year (tied with “Drive” as number one), it also had one of my favorite soundtracks of the year, topped off with the song “Dead Hearts” by Stars which pops up during the credits, which if you were not already emotional enough by the end of the film, you get a fresh rush of emotions with this beautiful song. When one song can encapsulate an entire film, it proves successful.
Having opened for the band Coldplay, Canadian band Stars is also heavily involved in the band Broken Social Scene. Stars has graced television shows like Gossip Girl, The O.C., and Chuck. “Like Crazy” appears to be one of the first films that they have been featured in, as well as driving the promotional trailer for the film with singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson.
