To All the Boys I’ve Loved BeforeKim Linekin
To All the Boys … is a rare teen romcom that actually respects teenagers; puts a Korean-American family front and center; doesn’t make fun of intelligence or inexperience; and gives the world an instantly iconic heartthrob in Noah Centineo as the sassy yet decent Peter Kavinsky. You’ll be seeing Centineo everywhere soon: watch his star rise in each scene here.
Lara Jean Covey writes letters to her five past loves which are meant for her eyes only. Somehow these letters get mailed to these erstwhile flames, and soon Lara's life is thrown into chaos when they confront her one by one.
The film is precisely what it should be: pleasing and clever, comforting and fun and romantic.
