For the past couple of weeks, there has been major hype about one single Netflix original movie, “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” There is no reason not to be talking about this movie’s characters, plot, scenes and the background to the movie.

The movie is based on the book series written by Jenny Han. The characters made by Han are written so well and the actors playing them give off an amazing performance making you fall in love with them within the first couple minutes they are seen. There are a handful of famous people in this popular movie, Noah Centineo (Peter Kavinsky), Janel Parrish ( Margot Covey) and King Bach (Gabe Rivera) for example. There’s also stars on the rise like Lana Condor who plays Lara Jean Covey.

After getting to watch, and later fall in love with, Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean Covey’s relationship form on screen I just had to look them up on the internet after. The two have such a close relationship off screen that it’s no surprise that their characters are played the way they are. They are both super relatable and it’s no wonder they are blowing up on social media.

Even though the things Kavinsky does for Covey may not be how boyfriends are portrayed in the real world it still gives viewers hope. If you haven’t seen the movie you still most likely know about the pocket holding, which leads to the pocket twirl in the cafeteria between the two. This moment is first based off the movie “Sixteen wishes” with a little twirl to the scene. It was one of my favorite scenes because it’s a turning point in their relationship. There was fighting, screaming, loving, and laughs held by the actors and myself in each moment throughout the movie.

One thing I did not look past was the music selection. The movie’s soundtrack is to die for. It has a very mellow feel to it with a hint of upbeatness, which in a way portrays the relationship of Kavinsky and Covey.

From beginning to end this movie had me on the edge of my seat crossing my fingers for shy Lara Jean in hopes everything would turn out alright for her. I have watched it over ten times and recommend you do too.
