I just recently re-watched “Five Feet Apart” since the first time I saw it in the theater. This movie is a heartbreaking romance that tells the story of two teenagers with cystic fibrosis, a disease that does not allow them to get within five feet of each other.
Stella, the main character, is introduced to a new patient in the hospital, Will. He also has cystic fibrosis, but he doesn’t take care of himself as well as Stella does. He is not concerned with living.
As the movie progresses, Stella becomes friends with Will as she tries to help him take better care of himself. As they begin to have feelings for each other, Stella and Will have to find a way to be together while staying five feet apart.
I love the friendships and romance in this movie. Poe and Stella are really great friends. Will and Stella are perfect together and it makes the movie so much better once you see how happy Will makes Stella and vice versa.
The ending of this movie is extremely sad, which is the only part I don’t love about it. It is interesting to see how cystic fibrosis affects the characters in this movie. The movie definitely keeps your attention and has some twists and turns that are very sad.
Overall, I would highly recommend this movie, especially for people who love romance and drama movies.
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
