The Half of It

The Half of It has been on Netflix for a long time, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it! This is one of the best teen romantic dramas we’ve seen on Netflix, and it definitely does not get the praise it deserves. It’s better than The Kissing Booth, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and pretty much every other teen romantic movie we’ve seen on Netflix.

The Netflix original film premiered in 2016. Alice Wu wrote and directed The Half of It, which tells the story of Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis), a teenager who begins helping another student, Paul (Daniel Diemer), win over Aster (Alexxis Lemire), a fellow student. Ellie writes letters to Aster, who thinks she is communicating with Paul, and the Aster and Paul hit it off. Over time, Ellie starts to develop feelings for Aster.

It’s been a while since The Half of It came out, and it’s rarely featured on Netflix. If you are looking for a good teen drama to watch on Netflix right now, you can’t go wrong with The Half of It.
