Everything, Everything (Review)

Everything, Everything is a new, young adult romance about an 18 year old girl who has been diagnosed with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency for as long as she can remember. She doesn't leave the house and only speaks to her mother, nurse and nurse's daughter. Until he moves in next door. 

The new neighbours have a very cute son and she can't help but stare. When he see's her, she shies away, but unable to get him out of her head, she has to see him and speak to him in real life.

In a way, this film reminded me very much of The Fault in Our Stars but I felt the main characters had a much deeper emotional connection. It was interesting to see the power of young love even in the face of death. I loved how we saw the reality of love and how it isn't always perfect.
People have pointed out that this film bridges the gaps of racism being showcased by other big screen films. It shows a black girl and a white boy and while I honestly never noticed it at the time of watching - I think they were two great actors and that's simply how I saw them - it was refreshing to have a different type of portrayal of characterisation. I'm really pleased that it has given people more confidence that it's okay to be yourself.
The soundtrack was perfect and the songs reminded me off the possibility to love; what it's like to love and how to love again. I loved that the music fits the scenes perfectly and portrayed the exact emotion needed while keeping the whole story lighthearted and simple.

I loved that this film stays true to the book and having read the book, it's nice to see that some of my most memorable quotes manage to be retained. It was really lovely to see the characters and story brought to life.
At times it can be impossibly infuriating to see the characters, having previously known the story and knowing where it leads but trying to decipher the signals. I do think it leaves much to the audience's desires because it can seem almost lackluster at times.
I have to say I thought that they had very clever ways of keeping the film interesting, especially during the virtual conversations. The interactive portion brought the film out from a dull section to a much more interactive one.

Have you seen the film? What did you think?
