My favorite films are those shot in Los Angeles. I especially enjoy films that treat Los Angeles almost like the city is a character itself, such as LA Story or LA Confidential. That is why I'm excited to see the movie 500 Days of Summer, starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, which opened in theaters this weekend. The Franklin Avenue Blog recently did a post mentioning how this film is like a love story to LA.
Hop on over to the Franklin Avenue blog to hear about some of the Los Angeles locations that made the film and also watch a great video of Deschanel and Gordon-Leavitt discussing growing up in Los Angeles.
