On Aug. 17, five days before school started, Netflix premiered its new and anticipated romantic comedy, “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” a film based on the novel series with the same name written by Jenny Han.

The story focuses on Lara Jean, a girl of Asian-American origin, in her junior year of high school. Our protagonist has written five letters addressed to five different guys who have stolen her heart throughout her life. However, unexpectedly one day the letters are mysteriously sent to each one of her recipients, and Lara Jean has to face her past loves. 

The film has become quite the Netflix sensation, even more popular  than “The Kissing Booth” which debuted last year. As is often the case, it is not a true copy of the book, but nevertheless it can be considered a good adaptation.

The story contains situations that raise awareness and show the audience what being a teenager is all about. The plot is realistic and authentic,  covering each aspect sufficiently. It does not overwhelm you. Throughout the scenes you will find yourself in the midst of mixed feelings and guaranteed emotion. The film  will undoubtedly make you smile.

The protagonist is someone quite friendly with whom the viewer can identify, someone you would like as your best friend or partner for lunch, and someone who will encourage you to try new things and face life with satisfaction.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, a film that recalls that life itself is a cliche. But what a good cliche.

If you haven’t watched it yet, what are you waiting for?
