I hate to admit it, but my favorite movies are romantic comedies. Maybe it’s the swoon-worthy actors and dialogues. Or maybe they’re just a nice 90-minute break from the reality of love lives on college campuses. Whatever the reason, when Netflix released ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ last week, I made some popcorn and turned on what I thought would be another guilty pleasure rom-com.
I ended up watching it four more times and haven’t shut up about it since.
‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ took over my entire Twitter feed. Everyone is talking and posting about it. Netflix has released many rom-coms over the summer, but no movie captured our hearts quite like ‘To all the Boys’.
It almost made me nostalgic for my high school days. That never happens.
In the movie, Lara Jean is a shy 16-year-old who shares a close bond with her sisters. She writes love letters when she has a crush and keeps them in a hidden box until one day, the letters get sent out and she’s forced to confront her feelings. Soon, she starts a fake relationship with one of the recipients, Peter Kavinsky, to make his ex-girlfriend jealous.
