It's one of those movies that regardless of the fact you know the ending, it's still inspiring and tear jerking to watch. The actors and actresses portrayed the life and situations to the best of their accuracy while still keeping the storyline center focus. It's a beautiful story of twisted love. From beginning to end it's hard to really know if they will finally let there guards down. But you start to get an incling that they don't despise eachother anymore and from there the friendship and love grows. They learn slowly to overcome their differences of opinions and political views. It doesn't come without its complications but it's a movie for teens and young adults in the world right now. Not everything in the movie is relatable but it gives them real life struggles like Type 1 diabetes, childhood trauma for both of them, drug addiction, PTSD, having to learn how to renavigate life after almost getting a leg blown off; letting eachother help the other one and the loss of a close friend to both of them. And it let's you watch as seemingly normal people try to navigate those challenges. Sofia and Nicholas did an amazing job.
