Laura Jean and Peter Kavinsky are back in the last installment of the To All the Boys trilogy.
Based on the three part book series by Jenny Han, actors Lana Condor and Noah Centineo have brought their characters to life in To All the Boys Always and Forever.
The movie follows Peter and Laura Jean through their senior year and the couple’s plans for the future. Their dreams are halted when Laura Jean does not make it into Stanford University, the key aspect in building their future life with one another.
The entire movie felt like one long love letter. A beautiful ode to young love and the fear of the future. “I love you Laura Jean, Always and Forever” should and definitely will go down as one of the most quotable movie lines of our decade.
The film makes several mentions to iconic love stories such as Romeo and Juliet, The Wedding Proposal, and When Harry Met Sally. There is no doubt about adding this movie to that list. Laura Jean and Peter make love look easy, even through the rough patches.
Rewatching this movie and its two counterparts is already on my to-do list for this upcoming spring break. I know that if I’m ever in need of a pick-me-up, feel good movie I can always turn to Laura Jean.
I would recommend this movie to everyone, especially those losing faith in their love. It reminds us that with love, you have to be willing to do whatever it takes. Even if it means sacrificing being together in order for your partner to follow their dreams. Those feelings are like diamonds, they only get stronger under pressure.
