Five letters one guy


Leaving audiences in shock, Netflix releases an original making every girl wanting a Peter Kavinsky

Based off the New York Times Best Seller, Susan Johnson creates a masterpiece out of Jenny Han’s 2014 novel. As Netflix is having a splur, releasing new and exciting romantic movies, summertime for the company has been nice to them. Han has written many young adult fiction books/novels, including the series To All the Boys I’ve Ever Loved Before. Because the film has gone viral, many are begging for a sequel to make their hearts aflutter.

Lana Condor’s character, Lara Jean, has a slight mishap in her normal and quiet life. Trying to live a normal life and just reading and writing about love, Lara Jean writes love letters of which no one knows about then suddenly they get released little too quick of a jump to the love letters, which ultimately changes her life forever. Peter Kavinsky, played by Noah Centineo, is one of the five crushes that keeps bugging Lara Jean about the letter and he eventually convinces her to have a fake relationship with her so that he could make his ex-girlfriend jealous. Throughout conflicting events, the two have an interesting destiny that left the audience wanting nothing but more.

Jenny Han’s almost perfect plot created a whole new fanbase for the movie and even the characters alone. Each and every viewer can and will fall in love with these characters, mainly Peter Kavinsky. In the novel, there is more imagination as to who sent the letters out, unlike the film where it is quite obvious. There are many differences between the book and the movie, but they both get the cutest message out.

The movie scored an astounding 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, exciting the critics as well as the viewers. To All the Boys I’ve Ever Loved Before took many by surprise, including myself. Knowing that Netflix has been releasing cheesy romantic chick-flicks, I was thinking this was going to be amongst those, I was glad to see that this movie had more genuine qualites. Other movies, including The Kissing Booth and Set It Up, seem to have forced characters to make the plot happen the way it was supposed to. Unlike the others, this movie is relatable and everything a girl could want. An entire fan base has been built around this movie in just several days after the movie had been released and I am not ashamed to say that I am a part of it. Everyone could use a feel good movie like this and eventually falling in love with it is a given.
