I’m trying something new, let me know what you think.
The Grownish Season 2 Premiere was one hour long, so the first two episodes. I was live tweeting for the first time. I had so much fun reading everyone’s comments.
Let me start off with the non-spoilers, like the fact that the outfits were poppin as usual. Ana was wearing these white fishnet leggings with patterned shorts and it was just sooo cute. Also, the twins had their shoe game on point. Nomi’s rocking the coat and I’m not gonna pretend Zoey isn’t killing it with that striped sweater. In the famed words of Spongebob, “The best time to wear a striped sweater, is all the time.”
I had a feeling I would like the movie better and that feeling proved true. I’m not a big fan of teen romance novels but I love the films. I also feel like this concept works better as a film. The movie did a great job of condensing the book and taking its own turns. I loved the way it played out on screen.
Lara Jean is a hopeless romantic. She falls in love with boys that she has no chance with, and when she’s ready, she writes these boys a letter. After she writes the letter, she’s not in love anymore. Then she stores the letters away in her hat box.
Lara Jean never planned for the letters to reach these boys. She just kept them for herself, but one day they get out and Lara Jean has to figure out how to save face. Her misadventures lead her into a fake relationship that leads to some real self-evaluation.
Eleanor has just moved back in with her mother and stepfather after being kicked out a year ago. The move brings with it a new school and the need for readjustment. Her family doesn’t seem so accepting and neither do the kids at school.
Park is half Korean and half white. He’s lived his life dodging racist comments from Steve, his next door neighbor and trying to fit into the mold of the “All-American Teen.” He’s not trying to fall in love with an outcast.
No one was rooting for these two to be together, not even them. So, how does this become a love story in the first place? Guess you’ll just have to read it to find out.
