A worthy YA book to film adaptation
Having thoroughly enjoyed the book and it’s characters, my expectations for the film were somewhat high – and met!
The film is a light hearted and fun watch, not dissimilar to films like The DUFF and How to be Single. I was left feeling sentimental and warm, I’ll be watching it again later today!
The adaptation was true to the book and contained the key elements that made it such a fun read in the first place. Lara Jean is as fickle but entertaining as her character in the book, the same with other characters (Peter is just as cocky but charming). My only slight complaint is that we didn’t get to see the best of Kitty, the craziest and wittiest character in the book at such a young age! She had some fantastic one liners in the books that still make me cackle.
The ending of the film set it up well for the sequel – hopefully other fans enjoy it as much as I did and we get to see everyone reunite to tackle the next plot!
A pleasant surprise.
I’m not going to lie, there were a lot of red flags going in to this, given the massive amount of dull and terrible Netflix films that have come out this year, many of which focused on relationships and slice-of-life type stuff, but I think I kind of like this one. It’s certainly the least obnoxious of the bunch, and is even more surprisingly carried by the young female supporting actress. There’s nothing this film does that’s extraordinary, but it’s an easily watchable film that’s fine through and through, and manages to avoid dragging despite having such a simple premise and it doesn’t overstay its welcome. The leads in the film aren’t amazing, but they’re certainly above average, and are relatively charming. The film is quite heavily reliant on exposition, and feels oddly reminiscent of 13 Reasons Why, though I would say this is a much more tasteful story that handles it’s premise appropriately whereas 13 Reasons Why felt melodramatic and edgy. The melodrama here manages to be less melodramatic, and the material is light-hearted enough to deal with a pinch of superficial acting.
The dramatic elements are certainly nothing new, such as dealing with the loss of a parent, but they’re implemented in a reasonable manner and are played out naturally and they add a bit of spice to what might have been an otherwise bland story with flat characters. It’s refreshing nowadays to see characters with tragic backstories being portrayed in an empowering way. These elements are almost understated, and as a result the characters seem stronger than the usual. Towards the end there’s a bit of an incident, but it doesn’t cause tonal whiplash, and it’s certainly not frustrating as it tends to be in other stories.
I’m not a huge fan of teen films, especially not in modern times with how the music industry has degraded into simple, easy-to-produce tripe whilst brainwashing the simple-minded teenagers into thinking they love superfluous and downright useless music, and there’s certainly an abundance of that in this film. It’s a shame because the score feels fine for the most part, and the film opts for no music when a scene works better without it. I’m fine with simple and fluffy tunes to accent the films various moments, but the commercial trash is hard to deal with, even in small doses.
This film’s a bit of a pleasant surprise, and is among the few 2018 Netflix films I would recommend so far. For those who dislike 13 Reasons Why for being edgy or tasteless, this film will likely be more up your alley, and it’s much less of a time investment as well.
