Netflix just debuted their latest coming-of-age film and it’s one of the best you will ever see.
What’s the plot?
Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis) is Chinese-American living in the Pacific Northwest with her dad. She’s doing fine being a loner; she’s super smart, unique, and even runs a business writing essays for her classmates. Her life is of course turned upside down when Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer) asks her to help him write a love letter for Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire), who Ellie also has a crush on.
How is The Half of It Different From Other Coming-of-Age Stories?
This film features a queer coming-of-age tale with a love triangle like you haven’t seen before.
The trailer promises that this movie may be a love story, but that doesn’t mean it’s a romance.
The film already has over 90% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and outstanding praise from fans online.
Be sure to watch The Half of It now streaming on Netflix.
