On March 15, a new hit movie movie was released to theaters and swept all of it’s fans with their tears. If you have seen it, you know what I mean.

Five Feet Apart will bring you to tears and leave you speechless. The main characters Stella (Haley Lu Richardson) and Will (Cole Sprouse) are two teens with Cystic Fibrosis. In an article from Medical News Today, James McIntosh talks about how it is a disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. It produces a thick mucus that blocks the airways. This is a deadly disease that makes it so that two people that have Cystic Fibrosis can not be near each other, because they have the potential of contracting a different bacteria that could harm the other.

Stella and Will are both living in the same hospital. They start off as simple friends, until their friendship soon turns into a whirlwind romance. The feelings between Stella and Will are so real, but they are not supposed to get within six feet of each other.

One of the other great aspects of this movie is the music selection. Many times you don’t notice this in a movie, but this one was different. There were unique songs throughout the movie that triggered certain emotions, which made it just more heart breaking. Some of the most popular ones were “Up Up & Away” by Chance Pena, “Medicine” by Daughter, and “Don’t Give Up On Me” by Andy Grammar.

This hook definitely brings in the aspect of forbidden love, and how you never know what you have until you can’t have it anymore. You end up falling in love with each of the characters. There are also so many ups and downs throughout the movie that it definitely has you reaching for the tissues the whole time.

In an article written by Mike McCahill, a movie critic for Rotten Tomatoes says, “a wicked new twist is added to an old meet-cute: they can’t get too close, lest they exchange potentially lethal lungfuls of bacteria. Here are two kids who could kill with a kiss.”

This movie is such a tear jerker, and you will definitely fall in love with it. Prepare yourself for lots of tears, but it is such a well done movie that it is completely worth seeing.
