It’s Disney meets “Clueless”!

BTSCelebs was recently given the opportunity to review the upcoming YA Netflix movie. If you adored Jenny Han’s novel “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before”, you will fall head over heels in love with this production. Casting for the summer film was fantastic! I don’t think they could have chosen better actors to portray the beloved characters. Stars Lana Condor (Lara Jean) and Noah Centineo (Peter Kavinsky) seemed like they walked right out of the book. They are the picture perfect couple, while Lara Jean’s dad, played by actor John Corbett, is the model father. The all around diversity in their friendship circles is wonderful as well.

The movie is all about good girl Lara Jean embarking on a fake dating relationship with her former crush, Peter. The teenage pair accidentally fall for each other during the contract relationship and their lives collide. The driving force of the movie is a set of love letters anonymously sent to Lara Jean’s former crushes.

“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” is highly recommended for diehard fans of the novel. It stays true to the book, while making some changes to surprise viewers. The romance reminds you of Disney Channel Original movies, while some of the language resembles the 1995 film “Clueless” in the present-day. Also, look out for a Jenny Han’s special cameo appearance in the movie.

“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” will premiere on Netflix on August 17th, 2018.

*A Special Thanks to Netflix for the movie screener.*
