We’ve been waiting for awhile to hear anything about the adaptation of Our Chemical Hearts. But we’ve been trying to be patient, because you know – that’s what one does during quarantine.
Even though we’re really, really bad at it.
But now we’ve been given some information – which in this day and time feels like Christmas.
The movie follows 17-year-old Henry Page (Austin Abrams) who has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the kind of once-in-a-lifetime love he’s been hoping for just hasn’t happened yet. Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town (Reinhart), and it seems all that is about to change. When Grace and Henry are chosen to co-edit the school paper, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious newcomer. As he learns the heartbreaking secret that has changed her life, he finds himself falling in love with her — or at least the person he thinks she is.
The cast also includes Sarah Jones, Adhir Kalyan, Shannon Walsh, C.J. Hoff, and Bruce Altman.
