“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” review


Evie Green, Buzz News Reporter

Many girls may know of the new Netflix movie, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. It is a movie about a teenager, Lara Jean, who has loved many boys but feels as if she cannot tell them about her true feelings. Lara Jean cannot tell anyone about how she feels, so she decides to write about it. She writes the boys letters about her feelings, but she doesn’t send them. This just gives her the satisfaction of getting things off her chest without people judging her. Everything is a secret until, one day, the letters get sent out by her little sister, Kitty. The one thing Lara Jean is worried about is her biggest crush, Josh Sanderson, finding out too much. Why is it so important that he doesn’t find out? Well, Sanderson had just gotten broken up with by Lara Jean’s older sister, Margot. This could hurt Josh and Margot. Lara Jean wants to make sure that Josh knows she is over her feelings, by pretending to date Peter Kavinsky. But Lara Jean’s fake relationship with Peter turns into something a little bit more real.

This movie was a very well-written movie. All of the lines that were said seemed so real and they were pulling me in every second. I will admit that some parts were a little frustrating, but that is how to make a really good storyline so that the movie isn’t boring. I would definitely believe that this was a true story if someone told me, because the writer made everything so realistic.

The actors were also very good at using the lines to their best ability. They would do so many little things that made the scenes seem less awkward when speaking the given lines. Overall, the actors were amazing, as well as the script.

The main characters were Lara Jean (Lana Condor), Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo), L.J.’s older sister, Margot (Janel Parrish), L.J.’s younger sister, Kitty (Anna Cathcart), L.J.’s best friend, Christine (Madeleine Arthur), and L.J.’s ex-best friend, enemy and Peter Kavinsky’s ex-girlfriend, Genevieve (Emilija Baranac).
