Official Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Henry Page (Austin Abrams) has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the kind of once-in-a-lifetime love he’s been hoping for just hasn’t happened yet. Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town (Lili Reinhart) and it seems all that is about to change. When Grace and Henry are chosen to co-edit the school paper, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious newcomer. As he learns the heartbreaking secret that has changed her life, he finds himself falling in love with her — or at least the person he thinks she is.

Where To Watch

Henry Page (Austin Abrams)

Henry is the kind of kid who seeks stimulation. Not in the form of reckless abandon, with drugs, alcohol, parties, and thrills of that nature. Rather, he wants creative stimulation. Meaning, he wants interactions, experiences, and conjured musings which create life long memories that can become eternal stories.

But, despite seeking different points of view and experiences, don’t consider him worldly. His upper-middle-class life has left him a bit sheltered, and with that comes some naivete. Especially when it comes to love and romance, which makes him falling for Grace the beginning of a life-altering chapter.

One could submit it also changed her mental and emotional state, which now makes her more distant to the idea of relationships or close friendships for reasons to be discovered in the movie. But, in her need for realism and seeing things beyond shiny facades, she awakens Henry.
