Felicity Jones and Guy Pearce star in writer/director Drake Doremus' follow-up to 2011 romance, Like Crazy. Keith (Pearce) is a music teacher - living comfortably with his wife and family in a small upstate New York town - who longs for the creativity of his bohemian youth. Enter pert British exchange student Sophie (Jones), who comes to stay with his daughter. Sophie's coy beauty and musical brilliance tempts Keith, and a taboo relationship unfolds.
