To all the boys I’ve loved before is the hit Netflix movie that was released on 17th August 2018. It’s a teen romcom movie based on a book series by Jenny Han. The movie features Lana Condor and Noah Centineo and is directed by Susan Johnson. The movie melted my heart, it’s so wholesome, pure, and soft. Here’s what others had to say about it- Vox said, “it might be the best teen romance movie of the decade”, cosmopolitan said, “While Crazy Rich Asians is the first major film to feature an all-Asian cast since 25 years ago, To All the Boys is the first mainstream teen romance to have a young Asian-American actress as its lead.” Now that’s progress! This is the story of Lara Jean Covey, she’s the middle child in a family of 4, 3 sisters and a father. The story is about how the love letters that she wrote (for her own pleasure) for the major crushes she has had in her life get sent to the people she’s written them for, accidentally. It is her journey after the love letters get sent, and how she deals with her feelings, dating for the first time. And how she ends up in a fake relationship with Peter Kavinsky, played by Noah Centineo. Noah Centineo stole all our hearts!  So much of the movie’s charm owes to Condor’s amazing lead performance and the chemistry between the two actors! It’s a Netflix original that any romance lover would enjoy. It is a must watch!
