the teenage tropes in this were a bit much, but this was so cute ahaha someonedateme
“i think something very important is happening and it’s deeply connected to my purpose.”
the first twenty minutes of this film are so perfect in introducing us to our characters and their situation. maybe it’s because i have a sibling in a similar situation as nick, but i couldn’t help but feel immense sympathy for connie, even as he continued to dig his own grave and betray every person who he came across.
the soundtrack was synthy goodness and i might?? actually?? prefer this over uncut gems??
this felt pretty pretentious and it was essentially the plot to Sierra Burgess is a Loser but with a bit of indie dropped into it
aster was boring and was the typical “not like other girls” trope you’d find in any john green book and all of the side characters were basically two dimensional pieces of cardboard that didn’t really serve the overall story much
HOWEVER i do support the waves it’s bringing out through it’s poc casting and normalizing…
