A Case of You is a romantic comedy film released in 2013, starring Justin Long, Keir O'Donnell, and Evan Rachel Wood. The film revolves around a young writer named Sam (Justin Long) who has a major crush on a local barista named Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood). Sam is a struggling writer who is trying to find inspiration for his next novel. One day while ordering coffee, he notices the charming barista, Birdie. He thinks of her as the perfect woman - smart, talented, and beautiful. However, he's too shy to ask her out.

Sam's friend, Eliot (Keir O'Donnell) suggests that he checks out her Facebook profile to learn more about her. As Sam stalks her social media pages, he learns everything about her likes, dislikes, interests, and hobbies. He soon finds himself pretending to share her interests, including playing guitar and hiking in the great outdoors.

Sam manages to attract Birdie's attention by pretending to be someone he's not, but as he gets closer to her, he realizes that he can't keep up with his false persona. He ends up hurting Birdie's feelings by not being truthful with her. He tries to fix things, but gets tangled up in a web of lies.

Throughout the movie, Sam struggles with balancing who he thinks Birdie wants him to be versus who he really is. He creates an idealized version of himself in his mind and tries to live up to that image. Meanwhile, Birdie is dealing with her own set of personal issues and insecurities.

The film explores themes of authenticity, identity, and self-discovery. Sam learns that it's important to be true to oneself, and not try to be someone else just to impress someone. He realizes that by being honest and authentic, he can find true love.

The performances of the three lead actors are noteworthy. Long is charming as the lead character, and Wood plays her role with grace and sensitivity. O'Donnell brings a lot of humor to the film, and his character adds a different perspective to Sam's story.

Overall, A Case of You is a charming romantic comedy that is both funny and heartfelt. It's a story that many people can relate to, as it delves into the modern-day phenomenon of social media stalking, and the pressure to present a curated version of oneself online. The film explores the challenges of dating in the digital age, while also highlighting the importance of being true to oneself.
