‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Will Be The New Favorite Teen Comedy
WARNING- This post contains spoilers!
Novelist Jenny Han and screenwriter Sofia Alvarez have come together for Netflix’s new movie. Netflix’s new rom-com is an adaption of the novel To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. And it’s exactly all the drama, comedy and romance that the fans needed.
Even when the movie is based on the novel, it does not remain completely faithful to the book’s essence. In fact, the ending of movie will be much more satisfying for fans than the book’s conclusion. Director for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before- Susan Johnson hopes that the film will still do justice to the novel for all the loyal readers.
While talking to the press, Susan Johnson revealed that from the three books of the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before story, Netflix has borrowed scenes from the second one and that they have picked and chosen the right moments that the fans would have liked to see.
Netflix’s movie came out on August 17th. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before stars Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, and Janel Parrish. Condor plays Lara Jean who is a 16-year old dreamer who finds herself in a bit of a mystery shock. Apparently, the love letters that she wrote to her different crushes over the years got released. But to somebody that they were not originally intended for. As things unfold, Lara is forced to play a fake relationship that later becomes authentic with her former crush Peter played by Noah Centineo. They embark on this romantic journey to prove that Lara does not have feelings for her sister’s ex-boyfriend. Lara’s sister Morgan is played by Janel Parrish.
The movie is somewhat an epic romance that a lot many people might relate to. Even though it revolves a lot around boys who might want to take Lara through her fantasies, Susan Johnson argues there is more to the picture. It’s about a girl exploring her romantic options. And then transforming her biggest fear into courage and start living for the first time.
Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a picture of something that almost all of us feel. Lara’s fears are real. And according to Johnson, all of us fear exposing our real selves to people who love us. Just because we are afraid that they will stop doing so. And knowing that at the end, every person is worthy of love will be the movie’s moral
Overall, Netflix‘s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a romance given the comedic bits in an unchallenged manner. With some valuable lessons on yourself and relationship, teens might just cast it as their next absolute favorite.
