To all the boys I loved before

by Shyanne Piatt, Reporter

In June 2014,  the young adult romance novel was optioned by Will Smith and James Lassiter’s production company Overbrook Entertainment. Annie Neal had been hired to adapt the book for the screen.
I found the movie intriguing and love the fact the movie promotes teenage romance, that the most unpredictable circumstances can have a happy ending.

I was kind of leery about watching this movie because who wants to watch a romance movie with their friends? Not me! This is one movie I did happen to fall in love with along with my friends. After watching, To all the boys I loved before, I was more than excited to find out that the movie was a book trilogy also. The first movie set the bar high and they have talked about a second movie to be produced.

High school student Lara Jean Covey, junior, writes letters to boys she once felt passionate about. These letters were her personal diary and were never meant to be seen. Until her younger sister Kitty sneaks into her bedroom and finds her collection of letters. So you know what happens next? Laura Jean gets confronted by one of her crushes at school. What if all the crushes you had, even ones from when you were little, found out how you felt about them all at once?

This story has a happy ending which is honestly the best part of the movie. When was the last time you believed in a teenage romance?

On rotten tomatoes, it has a 97% rating (7.4/10).
