I am in love with Peter Kavinsky (and Noah Centineo).
Hey Guys! So last night I watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I still love you on Netflix. Its cast includes Noah Centineo, Lana Condor, Israel Broussard among many others. I really enjoyed the movies and while they were not as good as the books (they could never be), they were nice.
Lara Jean is a sixteen-year-old girl who has never dated any guy before. She has had several crushes before and she has written five love letters to all of them, just so that she can let her feelings out. She never meant the letters to be read by anyone else. But when they get mailed to her crushes, it leads to a catastrophe and she ends up getting a faux-beau, Peter Kavinsky, who also is one of the most popular kids at school. And her life turns upside down.
Meanwhile, she has also been trying to cope with the fact that her sister, Margot, who was almost like a mother to her since her actual mother died, has left for college in Scotland. She is trying to play the role of the elder sister to her younger sister, Kitty, and does not really know if she is succeeding.
Watch this film to experience a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
There were several aspects of the film which I liked. First of all I loved the plot. It is extremely funny and adorable.
I also loved how accurately the characters were portrayed in the film. That is something which rarely happens in a film adaptation of a book and I feel really happy when it does. Like I had a huge crush on Peter Kavinsky when I finished the books and I think my crush is reviving.
The actors were brilliant in the film, absolutely brilliant. I loved John Corbett’s- Lara Jean’s father- acting. And Noah Centineo (Peter), Lana Condor (Lara Jean) and Anna Cathcart (Kitty) were just amazing.
The music and the songs in the film were also good. In fact, I have a couple of them in my playlist now!
What I didn’t like about the film was the fact that it missed a few details that were there in the book.
What follows is purely a rant about how I love Peter:
Where do I even start? Peter is just so nice and kind and caring. He also is a bit sassy and I simply love him. As for Noah Centineo, I just loved the way he acted in the film. And boy, do I love his voice. I find both of them (Peter and Noah) to be charming and nearly flawless.
Okay, I am going to stop now.
So, all in all, even though the movie misses quite some important details in the plot, it is worth watching for all those who love teenage romance.
Have you watched the movies? Have you read the books? Do you intend to do so? Let me know in the comments!
