Before To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before arrived as a runaway hit on Netflix in 2018, it had been a decent amount of time since a teen film connected with pop culture in such a widespread manner. But there’s something special about the Netflix original film that made the world fall in love with it. Based on the best-selling trilogy of young adult novels, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before stars Lana Condor as Lara Jean, a teenage girl whose private, unsent letters to her former crushes wind up released for public consumption around the school. Soon, she’s caught in the middle of a love triangle.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before holds a stellar 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and grew into a mainstream, viral phenomenon. In 2020, Netflix released the follow-up film, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love, which received less acclaim and fanfare than the original smash. However, when the trilogy closes out in February 2021 with the third and final installment, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean, an outpouring of love for the grand finale will undoubtedly ensue. If for some odd reason you haven’t journeyed into the romantic entanglements of Lara Jean, P.S. there’s still a lot of love to go around for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
