There are some people who would like a do over, go back in time and do high
school all over again, or indeed there are those people who never left. I would
never go back to that hellscape of hormones, and finding yourself while the
world gets ripped out from underneath you. Well today we look at a series that
explores that very time period in all its uncomfortableness.
TL;DR – It looks at the complicated emotions of love and how we respond to it.
Score – 3.5 out of 5 stars

The teen romance is a genre that use to be very popular but you don’t see it as much anymore in recent times. Part of the reason is that quite often these were the mid-tier films falling between Indy and Blockbusters that got squeezed out of oblivion in the rush for everyone to make their tent pole crossover franchises. Also the genre has gone through some shifts in the wake of works like John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars. However, as people realise that the big multi-film franchise can’t happen all the time, we have started to see the resurgence of these mid-tier budget films and all of this brings us to today’s film To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before a Young Adult/Coming of Age film about love and loss and the need to hide your letters better from well-meaning but potentially destructive siblings.
