Date: January 17, 2009
This Movie is based on Louder Than Bombs
This is The Smiths album cover that is shown on Tom's computer screen when he plays "Please, Please Please, Let Me Get What I Want", though interestingly this song is not featured on that album. It was also shown in the images of Tom's childhood room.
On January 8, Tom Hansen meets Summer Finn, the new assistant to his boss. Tom trained as an architect but works as a writer at a greeting card company, living in Los Angeles. Following a karaoke night, Tom's co-worker, McKenzie, lets slip that Tom is attracted to Summer. Over the next few months Summer and Tom grow closer, despite Summer making it clear to Tom that she does not believe in true love, and does not want a boyfriend.
