Stella spends much of her time living in a hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control - all of which is put to the test when she meets an impossibly charming fellow CF patient named Will Newman.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Romantic - This is a romantic drama aimed primarily at teens and females. Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse are the leads, with familiar older actors such as Claire Forlani and Parminder Nagra only having very small roles. There is some language, teen drinking, mild teen sex talk, so parents of younger kids may be concerned, as well as a generally dark theme about terminal disease.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average For those in need of a good cry, Five Feet Apart will fill the need but, even amidst the sniffles and tears, there's a sense that the experience could have been more wrenching and emotionally honest had the filmmakers showed a greater trust in their material and audience.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average It is tempting to dismiss this story as "sick-lit” but director Justin Baldoni balances the compelling specifics of CF with the larger questions we all face about creating meaning in a world of uncertainty and loss. And he does it with two gifted and appealing young stars...

NY Post Full Review
Good ...there is nothing sophisticated or nuanced about "Five Feet Apart.” The script...has a teen sheen and pep that you won't find in your average hospital. ...smartly paced, and Sprouse and Richardson make for one of the more adorable pairs in recent films. You not only want what's best for them, but believe it can actually happen.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average ...can feel, at least in its first half, more like an afterschool special than the weepie tragic romance it clearly aspires to be. Eventually, Five Feet Apart does enter Love Story mode, shamelessly jerking the audience's tears with one schmaltzy plot contrivance after another...

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 46 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "FIVE FEET APART." As with most movies, there were a few who rated it vastly different from the majority, but that's the value of multiple moviegoer reviews. You know there's a high probability that you will also enjoy this movie very much and possibly love it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) is every bit a seventeen-year-old... she's attached to her laptop and loves her best friends. But unlike most teenagers, she spends much of her time living in a hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control - all of which is put to the test when she meets an impossibly charming fellow patient named Will Newman (Cole Sprouse).

There's an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction. Further complicating matters is Will's potentially dangerous rebellion against his ongoing medical treatment. Stella gradually inspires Will to live life to the fullest, but can she ultimately save the person she loves when even a single touch is off limits?
