Together with the start of the rainy season, another reason to grow sentimental and nostalgic is about to arrive on Netflix. The internet entertainment service recently released a two-minute teaser of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, a film adaptation of Jenny Han’s popular young adult novel from the summer of 2014. We can still remember how this novel has been part of book recommendations on almost all websites for the “hip and young”.
Although it may seem like a plain story about teenage puppy love, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was able to touch hearts and be relatable enough to make people cringe in awe of the main character’s romantic mishaps as a student. It leaves everyone asking at that age: “What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?”
16-year-old Lara Jean Song Covey’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control when the love letters for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all– are mysteriously mailed out. These letters contain all her feelings and thoughts about a person, similar to how you would jot down events in your life on a diary.
From New York Times Bestselling Author Jenny Han, the film was directed by Susan Johnson and stars Lana Condor (Alita: Battle Angel, X-Men: Apocalypse), Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars), Noah Centineo (Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, The Fosters) and John Corbett (Sex and the City, Northern Exposure).
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is the first of a trilogy, followed by P.S. I Still Love You in 2015 and Always and Forever, Lara Jean in 2017. Let’s keep our eyes wide open for updates after the launch on August 17, 2018 on Netflix. Who knows, they might recreate the rest of the novels as well.
