Reviewing this movie now sort of reminds me of social distancing and the coronavirus.  Suffering from a severe genetic disease known as cystic fibrosis two teenagers, Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) and Will Newman (Cole Sprouse) and about how to watch five feet apart, just get your kleenex handy.


CF patients can’t come close to each other as it could prove fatal, so what happens when two fall in love with each other. Sounds like an epic recipe for disaster. Director Justin Baldoni (undercover bridesmaids) and also the star of Jane the Virgin through his Wayfarer entertainment company ( it ends with us) is the brains behind the movie along side Mikki Daughtry.

The story roles basically on the kind of patients the teenagers are, Stella takes her regimen and medications very seriously. The Split starlet, who also made appearances in The Edge of Seventeen starring Hailee Steinfield in this new medical spinoff is portrayed to be a meticulous achiever who seemingly walks on a tightrope. Will Newman, her counterpart is on the downward spiral, it’s Kind of like The Fault in Our Stars only with a personality flip. The Big Daddy star (1991) shows disinterest in taking his medications with quotes such as:

This whole time I’ve been living for my treatments, instead of doing my treatments so that I can live. And I wanna live, I’m tired of living without really living. I’m tired of wanting things.

Will Newman, Five Feet Apart

Now isn’t that uplifting..

Stella on the other hand who can’t seem to stand such an attitude makes a pact with him to help him with his medication. This results in the both of them getting close. Note that people with CF aren’t supposed to get within six feet of each other due to the risk of cross infection. The movie solely focuses on proximity issues between the two sick teenagers.

The movie went well until the ending where it got derailed into some kind of Telemundo sequel but still if you want a good cry. You should try this one.
