Netflix has released the trailer for its film adaptation of Beth Reekles’ best-seeling novel “The Kissing Booth”, starring Joey King, Joel Courtney, and Jacob Elordi.
Written and directed by Vince Marcello, the film revolves around Elle Evans (King), a teenage girl who, according to the official synopsis, risks her relationship with her best friend, Lee (Joel Courtney), when she begins a romantic relationship with his brother (Jacob Elordi), who happens to be the hottest boy in high school.
The trailer reveals some of the rules Elle and Lee, who have been friends since the day they were born, follow in order to protect their friendship. Rule #2, for instance, consists in never telling anyone else their secrets, Rule #9 in keeping Lee’s older brother, Flynn, who’s “stupid hot”, off limits, and Rule #10 in never ever break Rule #9. When it’s time for them to give an idea for a fundraiser, they both come up with the initiative of creating a kissing booth. Flynn is there and he manages to get to Elle’s heart, which leads to a difficult situation for her, since she becomes guilty for breaking the Rule #9.
“For me, there was nothing more important than following the rules, but in life you can either follow the rules or follow your heart,” Joey King’s character, Elle, is heard saying. “What rules would you break, what secrets would you keep for the love you’ve always wanted?” onscreen lines read throughout the trailer, which is soundtracked by Robbie Nevil’s “Crash Into Me”.
The Kissing Booth, also starring Molly Ringwald, will be available on the streaming service starting May 11.
