Revolving around teenage problems he Half of It is a heartwarming and endearing movie. Here is our review about the film. This will give you a clear understanding if you should add it to your checklist or not.
Here is all you need to know about the film!
Half of It, it did feel like a story about an introverted teen who eventually falls in love and everything changes. With a casual plot a nerd teenager and a jock chasing a pretty girl. The girl will eventually fall for the nerd and they’ll live happily ever after. Although the story line may seem repetitive, but there are certain elements that you need to watch on.
The Half of It puts a queer YA spin on a classic romance story, but Wu makes it her own – delivering a charming, sweet and altogether heartfelt movie.
Character Performance in the Film ( The Half of It):
Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis) is a loner with no friends, but a booming black market essay writing gig at her high school when she’s approached by lovesick jock Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer) to help him write a love letter to the girl of his dreams: Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire). Ellie and Paul become close friends as they’re working together to woo Aster, with the lovable jock breaking down many of the walls Ellie has put up over the years of being an outsider in their small town. But as both Ellie and Paul’s feelings for Aster deepen, the three teenagers form a love triangle that will force each of them to confront their views on love and relationships.
The film puta a torch on the LGBTQ angle. It surely stands on a bit different on the plot. Right now it stands one of Netflix’s one time watch. I would like to give it 3 stars.
