Everything Everything Blu-ray

Everything, Everything is a movie for teens, released on Blu-ray Disc by Warner Home Video on August 15th, 2017.

This romantic drama film was written by J. Mills Goodloe, based on the young-adult novel by Nicola Yoon.

The story follows a teen named Madeline, who has lived isolated from the world due to an immuno-deficiency disease.

When new neighbors arrive, Maddy must make some choices involving the risk of leaving the safety of her cocoon.

Everything, Everything the Movie

Eighteen-year-old Maddy was diagnosed long ago by her mother Dr Pauline Whittier with an immuno-deficiency disease known as SCID.

This prevents her from leaving her home, and Pauline takes care of her with the help of her nurse Carla.

Only Pauline, Carla, and Carla’s daughter Rosa are allowed to enter the house, keeping Maddy safely sealed off from the outside world.

While Maddy yearns to see the world, she has become somewhat resigned to her fate.

Soon a new family moves next door, and their son Olly catches her attention.

Later that night Olly and his sister ring the doorbell, offering the Whittiers a bundt cake.

Olly and Maddy begin a relationship through texting and email, with the occasional sightings through their adjacent windows.

As Maddy becomes more and more attached to Olly, she has to decide whether she should keep obeying the rules, or risk it all to see the outside world with Olly.

Everything, Everything is actually a pretty decent addition to the young adult / teen romance genre.

With a grounding based on a mother’s concern for her vulnerable child, the film delivers a solid story with relatable characters.

In a world where teen and young adult literature was dominated by the likes of Twilight, this film has a welcomed tie back to reality.

For the most part the story and characters come across as natural and true, and while it is a little procedural, there is the occasional surprise.

Every now and then the film goes into Maddy’s ‘imagination land’, which offers a more whimsical tone and gives the characters a better chance to interact.

While not especially fond of the genre myself, I think that Everything, Everything delivers well on its promises and is a good choice for the teen and young adult audience.
