REVIEW: Everything, Everything Proves Love Is EverythingMay 19, 2017 - Author: admin - Comments are closed
Everything, Everything is the story of a Maddy, a young girl diagnosed with a very rare form of SCID, severe combined immunodeficiency, who has spent her entire life indoors. Enter Olly, the bad boy neighbor who opens Maddy’s eyes to the world outside of her bubble. This relationship forces Maddy and Olly to put their trust in love and each other.
Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, the story follows the standard girl meets boy, they fall in love, and together they experience a whole new world. The film is a bit predictable at points and falls flat at others, but overall is an enjoyable picture.
Everything, Everything separates itself from others of its kind (see most novels by John Green) when it comes to its two leads, Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson. Amandla is a delight in this role and does an amazing job of bringing to life Maddy’s complex layers.
Nick, on the other hand, wins the audience over with his smoldering gaze and awkward not a boy not quite a man predicament. Together the pair are a joy to watch on screen, their chemistry and charm light up the film and it’s clear they enjoyed filming this project together.
With a great soundtrack, beautiful setting and intriguing leads, Everything Everything is a delightful coming of age film. This film is the perfect rainy day or night out with friends flick.
