Director Stella Meghie’s Everything, Everything is a charming love story about an eighteen-year-old girl (Amandla Stenberg), who has had to live in a controlled environment all her life due to a deficiency in her immune system that would imperil her living in the outside world.
When a handsome young man’s (Nick Robinson) family moves in next door, her hormones go into hard drive and she begins to rebel against her doctor mother’s (Anika Noni Rose) desire to keep her in isolation.
Screenwriter J. Mills Goodloe, who wrote the superb Age of Adeline, has created a very interesting way of portraying a story about characters in a claustrophobic situation by showing their dreams of what might or should have been as they interact. And, Meghie has done a fine job of drawing fine performances from her actors.
Love is Everything, Everything and I give this film a 4 out of 5.
