Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming teen romance film “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” set to be launched on August 17.
An adaption of the 2014 young adult romance novel of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Jenny Han, the film revolves around teenager Lara Jean Song Covey, whose love life goes out of control when the love letters for every boy she’s ever loved – five in all – are mysteriously mailed out.
Directed by Susan Johnson, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before stars Lana Condor (also known for her roles on Alita: Battle Angel, X-Men: Apocalypse), Janel Parrish, Noah Centineo, Anna Cathcart, Israel Broussard, and John Corbett.
The trailer opens with Corbett, who plays Lara’s father, giving Lara some condoms and encouraging her to talk about her sexual health and to not forget to have some fun. She and one of the boys to whom she wrote a letter start pretending they are together and she’s apparently very happy, but one of the scenes shows her in tears, revealing she’s lying to every single person in her life. “Find the courage to write your destiny,” an onscreen line read throughout the trailer, which ends with one of the boys telling her “You can’t just sit up in your room and write love letters. You gotta tell people how you feel when you feel it”.
The song playing in the trailer is the 2017 single “I Like Me Better” by American singer Lauv, from his second album, “I Met You When I Was 18. (The Playlist),” which was released in May 2018.
