“Everything, Everything,” directed by Stella Meghie, is a romantic film about a teenage girl named Maddy Whittier (Amandla Stenberg). She has a disease that stops her from leaving her home and interacting with other people.

Only her mother, Pauline (Anika Noni Rose), and her nurse, Carla (Ana de la Reguera), are allowed in the house. New neighbors move in next door, including a boy her age named Olly Bright (Nick Robinson).

Inevitably, the two fall in love, and Maddy is introduced to a world she never knew. But it’s not all roses and heart-shaped candies. Like a lot of teenage girls, Maddy has an overprotective single mom. Maddy isn’t allowed to interact with kids her age.

The acting in “Everything, Everything” is fantastic. Throughout the movie, the actors do a good job of conveying emotion and changing the way they feel towards other characters. Once Maddy gets outside her house, Stenberg’s facial expressions capture the amazement, almost shock, of stepping into the real world.

Nick Robinson, who portrays Olly, was easily my favorite character because of his love and support towards Maddy. That kept me wanting to watch more. The chemistry between Maddy and Olly was amazing and seemed so real.

I also liked that every character had something different going on, but they all connected to Maddy’s story.

The editing gave the film a happy energy, and the settings looked very realistic. The details of the movie looked so amazing. When Maddy and Olly jump into the ocean late in the film, it made you want to jump into the water, too. 

This film is worth seeing. It includes a little bit of romance, comedy, and drama. “Everything, Everything” makes you want to fall in love.
