Plot & Cast
Netflix’s ‘I Am Not Okay With This’ is actually adapted after a graphic novel by Charles Forsman.
The show is about a teenage girl Sydney who is being played by Sophie Lillis. The actor was previously seen in the movie ‘IT’ as young Beverly. Sydney has anger issues and she can do anything in rage. On top of that, she is depressed. She is navigating through high school life with all it’s trials while discovering her budding sexuality.
But what soon happens is that Sydney discovers she has mysterious superpowers. This is her awakening that causes a further series of events in her life.
Sounds, exciting right?
The cast also includes Wyat Oleff, Sofia Bryant, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Aiden Wojtak-Hissong, and Richard Ellis.
I Am Not Okay With This Trailer
The trailer starts with a shot of Sydney running soaked in blood, but soon mellows down to the remaining plot of the story. And the moment you watch the trailer you get ‘Stranger Things’ combined with ‘The End Of The F*cking World’ vibes from it.
Well, that is no surprise. Because the director of this show is Jonathan Entwistle of ‘The End Of The F*cking World’ alongside producers of ‘Stranger Things.’
Sydney is a character you start to like just by watching a few minutes of this trailer. She is a 15-year-old dealing with the death of her father, as well as handling the fact that her best friend who happens to be her crush is dating a bully.
From the looks of the show, it will be bold, edgy, yet deeply personal. A number of sequences begin ‘Dear Diary’ as Sydney shares her emotions there. And this sets the tone for the entire show.
There is teen angst, drama, young romance, and the best part: superpowers.
We are definitely getting to this show because we have high hopes. You can watch the ‘I Am Not Okay With This Trailer’ here:
