A teenager who's lived a sheltered life because she's allergic to everything, falls for the boy who moves in next door.
Drama Romantic - This is a romantic drama based on a popular young adult novel, and
thus it is target at teens, specifically teen females. Young leads
Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson have been in other big movies
before, but more familiar veteran stars such as Anika Noni Rose and
Ana de la Reguera only have supporting roles. Some teen sensuality,
language, and dark themes may give parents of young kids some pause.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average ...a movie that begins with an intriguing premise and does a nice job developing it, falls apart in the last act as hard-to-swallow contrivances contort the climax to the point where it's difficult to suspend disbelief to the degree necessary to buy into what the filmmakers are selling.
Roger EbertFull Review Average Charismatic film actors can work miracles with so-so material. But there usually comes a point when they can no longer camouflage that the story they are so earnestly committed to telling is somewhat suspect.
NY PostFull Review Below Average ‘The Fault in Our Stars” made debilitating illness the stuff of soaring teen romance; "Everything, Everything,” adapted from Nicola Yoon's young adult novel, injects the concept with a lethal dose of saccharine.
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average And when the film's real plot crux arrives, it's such a by-the-book Y.A. device that even the throngs of giggling-fawning teenagers in the film's target audience aren't likely to accept it as romantic fatalism but, instead, 2017's cutest manifestation of trendy gaslighting.
