Two new young romance films have entered theaters over the last month, and we’re loving both of them.
Every Day was released on February 23, 2018, and featured the journey of Rhiannon, a high schooler played by Angourie Rice, as she comes to know an entity known as A who wakes up in a new person’s body every single day. A never awakes in the same body twice and is always in someone of the same age.
The film shows the progression of both Rhiannon and A, the first of whom must grapple with A’s story – and learns that she is deserving of real love – and the latter who must find themselves and learn who they really are. Every Day is a celebration of what’s on the inside and a true testament that love can win.
Love, Simon, on the other hand, was released on March 16, 2018 and is a coming-of-age story following the namesake teenager played by Nick Robinson. This rom-com features Simon, who is gay but not out, as he connects with an anonymous student via email and grows feelings for this other closeted guy at his school.
Simon struggles to hide his identity after his emails are found by another student who threatens to out him if he doesn’t help this student win over one of his friends. During this time, Simon is also trying to figure out who exactly he has been emailing with so they can meet in person for the first time. This film promotes unconditional love and treats this love story as any straight one would be handled, creating a timeless message.
Both films are written, filmed, and acted beautifully, and we at Fuzzable cannot get enough of them. Have you seen either or both of these films? Comment below and tweet us @Fuzzable with all of your love for Every Day and Love, Simon!
