Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse in FIVE FEET APART.
Ok, I’ll admit it, I am guilty of watching teen flick love stories. There’s an element of sadness, almost a Romeo and Juliet element to this story, except it’s the same disease that keeps them apart instead of different families. If you’ve ever had someone who was terminally ill in your family, then you know how painful it is to watch them suffer and desire connection to other people when they are not allowed to. Sometimes love is worth risking death for, and this story represents this.
ABOUT THE MOVIE:
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).
