What: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
When: August 17, 2018
It seems as though Netflix is pulling efforts to bringing back the rom-com genre. Following the success of ‘The Kissing Booth’, ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved’ will surely be your next guilty pleasure.
Along with recent teen films such as, ‘The Edge of Seventeen’ and ‘Love, Simon’, it’s refreshing to see teen movies dealing with everyday adolescent struggles instead of dealing with kids trying to save the world.
The Premise of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’, based on Jenny Han’s bestselling novel of the same name, depicts your biggest cringe-worthy nightmare. The film centers on a shy high-schooler Lara Jean, who writes love letters to her five crushes and stores them away in a box in her closet. But oops! *CRINGE ALERT* her secret love letters to former crushes accidentally get sent out! To avoid admitting her past feelings, she fakes a relationship with one of them, but she soon realizes that she may be falling for him.
Details About To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Details about the film and cast have been slowly coming out over the past few months. Jenny Han has expressed her excitement about the diverse characters seeing as leads in the rom-com genre are mostly white.

The author further states, “The most important thing for me as the author is seeing an Asian American girl in the starring role, and with this movie, we get to see not one but THREE!” she wrote. “That is truly groundbreaking.”
