Film Review: Every Day

Don’t be fooled by the power of marketing behind certain films. Sometimes the best movies are not even publicised. It is the case of romantic drama Every Day which is released in cinemas on 20th April without much fuss. I loved it and so did most people at the exclusive screening at the Ham Yard Hotel in London judging from the laughs and silences (those were even more powerful than the giggles) in the room. The London Mums team attending felt they had their hearts stolen… Read further to find out why.

The story

Based on David Levithan’s acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Every Day tells the story of Rhiannon, a 16-year old girl who falls in love with a mysterious soul named “A” who inhabits a different body every day. Feeling an unmatched connection, Rhiannon and A work each day to find each other, not knowing what or who the next day will bring.

The more the two fall in love, the more the realities of loving someone who is a different person every 24 hours takes a toll, leaving Rhiannon and A to face the hardest decision either has ever had to make. Starring Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys) alongside Debby Ryan (Jessie – Disney Channel), Justice Smith (Paper Towns) and Owen Teague (IT).

The cast might not be too well known yet, but watch this space as they are really talented and I am pretty confident we will see them again in the future.

The verdict 

Finally a movie that made me feel light during and after watching it. In a world at the brink of a Third World War we all need positive messages and film makers have their share of responsibility to spread them. 
Unlike the Hunger Games series, which has a lot of violence without resolving the issue of the rich-beautiful / poor – ugly divide, Every Day is a teenage flick that leaves you with the message that love is not just about liking someone’s appearance but especially their personality.

We follow a teenage girl as she goes through the ups and downs of falling in love in a very ‘clean’ and sweet way. Every day is based on a wonderful novel and the script is obviously well crafted. Although the message is deep and we are all familiar with, it is difficult for us to believe that you can love someone you don’t find physically attracted to. But this movie makes you understand how this can happen because love strikes the deepest cords in our heart in the most beautiful ways. 
I wasn’t sure how this movie would end without breaking the heart of its spectators, though. However it ends well and not in the most obvious way. In fact the ending showcases the ultimate act of love. You simply need to see it and make sure you take your teenage children to see it, if you have any.
