    *SPOILER ALERT*

    The highly anticipated romance movie, Everything, Everything was launched in theaters on May 19, 2017. This movie received much praise. According to Google Forums, roughly 88 percent of audiences enjoyed the movie.

    Everything, Everything is a 2017 American romantic drama film directed by Stella Meghie and written by J. Mills Goodloe in 2015. In the first weekend that Everything Everything was out in theaters, it earned about 12 Million dollars in the box office, according to Forbes. Many of the comments that viewers had were positive. Molly Freeman of Screen Rant stated “Everything, Everything offers some creative flourishes on a fairly typical teen romance that succeeds thanks to its young stars.”

    The cast of Everything Everything includes Amandla Stenberg, Nick Robinson as co-stars playing the two protagonists, Maddie Whittier and Olly Bright, respectively.

    At the beginning of the movie, Maddie has never been outdoors due to her sickness of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency that she was diagnosed with as a young child. Her mother, who is a doctor,  has built a shelter to destroy bacteria. Maddie has an interest in astronauts and architecture and displays many of her designed architectural models throughout the movie with an astronaut included in each piece. Olly then comes into the movie when he moves in next door to Maddie, but has an unusual family. They begin texting each other and they have many interesting adventures afterwards.

    The movie had a really shocking ending. The experiences that the two protagonists have are really relatable despite Maddie’s sickness. The ending of the film was still amazing as the two go through many experiences together which invoke many emotions in the viewer. I think it was really cute that with all the problems that both of them face in their lives including the insecurities they both have, they always find a way back to one another. The movie was really good but it went really fast: Their choices that they made were too quick. The Hawaii trip that they take is unrealistic, but it was almost a dream vacation that every teen would want to have. I also didn't like how at the end of the movie, it turns out that she didn't have the disease, in the first place. The acting from the characters was really good and they both made it seem like they were actual, typical teenagers. Throughout it all, this movie was definitely great, and I highly recommend it.
