“Five Feet Apart” is a beautiful, romantic and tragic movie especially for teenage viewers.  After many good events that happen throughout this movie the viewer learns everything has to come to an end.

Coming into this movie, I didn’t have very high expectations nor did I want to see the movie.  As the movie started to progress, I found a lot of interest in the movie, and it brought out a lot of emotional sides.  “Five Feet Apart” now goes down as one of my favorite movies.

“Five Feet Apart” is about two teenagers who both have Cystic Fibrosis and fall in love.  Since they both have the disease and one is more contagious than the other, they cannot touch each other or get closer than six feet to each other.  One day, Stella came up with the idea to take away something from the disease making it five feet apart instead of six. The two then learn to fall in love.   The two get closer, and they start to break the rules and don’t know the consequences. As the movie goes on, they both will do something they will regret for the rest of their lives.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease in the lungs that causes more mucus to produce than others.  This genetic disease does not yet have a cure. According to Quartz, “About 70,000 people worldwide have Cystic Fibrosis.”

Cole Sprouse plays Will in the movies and has been in many other movies and TVshows. Haley Lu Richardson plays Stella in the movie and is in many movies as well.

Justin Baldoni directed the movie “Five Feet Apart.”  Tobias Laconis is one of the screenplay writers and also wrote the book “Five Feet Apart.”  The movie was based on the book.
