TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE 💌💌
This is a Netflix movie based on the book To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han.
No, she is not a shy girl with spectacles that suddenly finds her true love to remove the spectacles and notice she is beautiful. No, he is not a mindless cruel jock with the only purpose in life to show girls what not to date. No, he is not the good friend who in the end gets the girl because that’s who she really loved. The characters in this film feel real and act like real people. It was a low-key romance movie which is what I loved most about it because it was warm and nice. I loved that there were no real villains, only people with goals and hopes and desires. I like the actors, the acting and the direction.
Is it a romantic young adult novel adaptation? Yes it is!
Is it stupid and formulaic? Definitely not!
To me it is one of the few movies about love and romance that don’t re-tell the same cardboard story with the same cardboard characters. It is an art to find the perfect spot between reliability and realism, and I think this film found it.
But all in all, I would definitely recommend this film to everyone!
I also hope they would make a second film by adapting the book “P.S. I Still Love You” by Jenny Han which is the follow up to the first book!
