Film: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Opened: August 17, 2018

Directed by: Susan Johnson

Starring: Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, Janel Parrish, Anna Cathcart, Andrew Bachelor, Trezzo Mahoro, Madeleine Arthur, Emilija Baranac, Israel Broussard, Jordan Burtchett & John Corbett

Jenny Han’s 2014 novel featuring a mixed Asian-American lead got a well-deserved adaptation on Netflix that remains faithful to its source material

When her sister Margot (Janel Parrish) goes to college abroad and breaks up with her boyfriend Josh (Israel Broussard), Lara Jean’s (Lana Condor) life already feels upended. What she doesn’t expect is for her personal love letters hidden away to be sent to their intended recipients including Josh and the popular Peter (Noah Centineo).

The great thing about these characters is that they’re flawed and awkward. And it’s not the typical high school romantic-comedy awkward that still lets them be perfect, but actual quirks.

Condor and Centineo are a fantastic pair and both will make you fall in love with them and hate their decisions. Both characters make the other grow.

Final say: Love this forever. ★★★★★
