This movie is based on a book by Nicola Yoon which I reviewed last year. I loved the book so I was skeptical that I would enjoy the movie. I’m happy to say that the movie lived up to the book’s reputation.
The movie follows 18-year-old Maddy, who is stuck inside her house due to an illness that would cause her to die if she went outside. When Olly moves in next door, they start communicating and eventually fall in love. They decide to risk everything to be together, but will it be the end of them?
This movie is a cute, fun, yet poignant movie about two teens willing to risk everything for love. The actors were wonderful in their respective parts, Amandla Stenberg as Maddy (you might recognize her as Rue from The Hunger Games) and Nick Robinson as Olly. While I still think the book was better (as I often do), I do recommend this movie as well.
