Okay, so these thoughts I’m about to spill is fresh because I just finished watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before! I feel so giddy and happy and all sorts of good mood!
The movie is based on the Novel written by Jenny Han. Basically, the story revolves around Lara Jean and the letters she had written for the boys she fell in love with. These letters which she has no intentions of sending out were kept hidden in a blue box. The catch? These letters was actually sent out!!! Yada, yada.. Let’s skip the story telling part and I’ll let you figure out the whole story by yourself. Go watch!
Now on to my thoughts about the film. First off, I’m gonna say that I do like it. Why? Because…
There was diversity in the castings. The main actress was Asian and that was pretty cool. I’ve read an article about the author’s interview wherein most of the production company who were interested in adapting the movie wanted to whitewash it.
Though there were some differences between the book and the film, it was still portrayed fairly. I had no “wait, what?! this was not in the book” moments as I am with other film adaptations.
The sisterly bonding was amaaaazing! It shows that your sisters always have your back, no matter what.
Peter Kavinsky is such a babe!
The art direction is pleasing to the eyes (as for me).
I love the portrayal of the awkward adolescent experiences.
Overall, the film is endearing and is one of the good rom-coms that I have watched. It gives off the vibe that wants to make you fall in love all over again. The ending was properly set for a sequel. Netflix, we are waiting!
(This is short because I do not know how the freak do I write a review without spoiling lol)
