To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, a teen romance starring Noah Centineo and Lana Condor, deals with the struggles and uncertainties of dating when you’re 16 years old.
To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You is the sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, which I reviewed a few months ago.
To remind you of the original story, Lara Jean (Lana Condor) wrote some love letters when she was in grade school. Her sister Kitty (Anna Cathcart) mailed them years later and Lara Jean accidentally became friends with one of the recipients, Peter (Noah Centineo). They pretend dated and decided to start really dating.
Part of the angst about the relationship is that Lara Jean is never really sure Peter is over his old girlfriend Gen (Emilija Baranac). This is further complicated because Lara Jean and Gen used to be best friends.
As part of Lara Jean’s high school community service, she volunteers at a senior living community. Stormy (Holland Taylor) is a resident there. #EldersRock so much when Holland Taylor is involved! Stormy and Lara Jean take to each other.
And, plot twist, John Ambrose (Jordan Fisher), another recipient of Lara Jean’s burning love letters from long ago, is also volunteering there.
Being around her old flame John Ambrose creates confusion in Lara Jean’s mind. She’s torn between Peter and John Ambrose and stumbles and stutters around the situation awkwardly.
This is a sweet and cheerful teen romcom, filled with bright greens and yellows. The talented young actors do a terrific job. Everything turns out fine in the end. Depending, of course, on whether you were team Peter or team John Ambrose.
Take a look at the trailer.
If you enjoyed the first movie about Lara Jean and her love life, I think you’ll like To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, too.
