Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) is a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who is unable to leave the protection of the hermetically-sealed environment within her house because of an illness. Olly (Nick Robinson) is the boy next door who won’t let that stop them from being together. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, Maddy and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together, even if it means losing everything.
I think the saying is pretty accuarte: the book is always better. I was really excited for this film, which is why I picked up the book in the first place. Click here for my review. I did like this movie, and it’s quite an accurate adaption. Stays very true to the book, but I didn’t feel the feelings I did while reading. It was sometimes a little awkward in scenes. And I feel that the screen cuts were sometimes a little confusing. Amandla played her part very well, and Nick did too. I was in a theatre of girls that were talking and laughing kind of loud and it got annoying. But I really did enjoy most parts of the film. I loved Rosa and her daughter. It was overall a cute and adorable movie.
