I loving watching a YA film adaptation at least once a month and then reviewing it. It is making me appreciate these films a lot more. The film I watched at the start of this month was Everything, Everything. This is the film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Nicola Yoon. I adore the novel and I was also a fan of the film. Here is my film review!
Maddy is a curious, smart and imaginative eighteen-year-old who isn’t able to leave the protection of the hermetically-sealed environment within her house because of her illness. Olly is the boy next door who will not let that stop them from being together. By gazing through windows and talking only through texts, Maddy and Olly form a bond that leads them to risk everything to be together. Even if this means losing everything.
I remember reading Everything, Everything back when I was in college. It was the first book I ever read within a day which is why it has stuck with me for many years. I was so excited to watch the movie adaptation when it was released as it felt as though a favourite book of mine was being brought to life.
Amanda Stenberg and Nick Robinson were cast as the perfect Maddy and Olly and I was so happy to have these incredible actors portray the characters. They both portray the characters exactly how I imagined them when I was reading the book so this made me enjoy the film even more. The cast of this film has definitely been picked with a lot of thought and you can tell this immediately.
Everything, Everything is definitely a refreshing film with a diverse cast. As well as a main character that girls everywhere can relate to. It is a very warm, heart-breaking and soft movie that has an important message throughout. It also has a very chilled vibe and soundtrack which is perfect if you are looking to relax in front of a movie.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Everything, Everything film adaptation and I will definitely be watching it again in the future. Although it isn’t my favourite adaption that there has been it is another well worth a watch. If you are looking for a heart-warming, chilled out movie to watch then Everything, Everything is for you!
