To All The Boys: P.S I Still Love You (2020)

{A very short and sweet review of the second film in the series of To All The Boys by Jenny Hann}

Ok, so when I saw the trailer for this, I didn't think it would be as good as the original. I absolutely loved To All The Boys I've Loved Before and I thought that the sequel simply wouldn't match up to the first in the series. However, I was wrong. 

The second in the series starts by showing how Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and Peter (Noah Centino) are still very much in love. But then a curveball gets thrown – she has a reply from John Ambrose (Jordan Fisher). Another recipient of one of her love letters. Holding onto this letter for weeks, Lara Jean wants to tell Peter that she received it – but is too nervous.

After applying for work experience at a care home, John Ambrose then coincidentally arrives and they realise that they have to work alongside each other. Throughout this time, they grow feelings towards each other and a love triangle emerges. However, it's no that simple. Not only is Lara Jean starting to think more and more about John Ambrose, but she still feels as though Peter has feelings for his ex Gen. 

What ensues is a beautifully filmed, realistic and heartwarming plot with several twists and turns that keep you guessing. Every moment of the film is colourful and relatable, making me feel as though I'm 15 again. And not in fact, 10 years older.

Although, saying that, I don't think that this film I just for teenagers - as despite there being a few cheesy scenes, it's so easy to watch from start to finish. The characters are also likeable and the story doesn't fall into the trap that many teen-ish dramas do of making the story far too unrealistic. 

I would definitely recommend this film – whether you've seen the first one or not. It's funny, charming and well-thought out. Of course, that could be because the films are based on books but nonetheless. So go and watch it and see what you think. The themes will suit both genders – so don't worry about it being 'too girly'.
