Seventeen-year-old Henry Page (Austin Abrams) has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the kind of once-in-a-lifetime love he's been hoping for just hasn't happened yet. Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town (Lili Reinhart) and it seems all that is about to change. When Grace and Henry are chosen to co-edit the school paper, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious newcomer. As he learns the heartbreaking secret that has changed her life, he finds himself falling in love with her - or at least the person he thinks she is. Written by Amazon Studios

User Reviews

Romantic drama story that goes over loss and young love.
31 August 2020 | by cruise01See all my reviews

Chemical Hearts (3 out of 5 stars).

Chemical Hearts is a fair romantic drama film. About young love Henry (Austin Abrams) joining a newspaper class as a editor in chief. Along with Grace (Lili Reinhart) which she has a limp and a past she cant get over. When Henry and Grace partner up in class. Henry falls for her. As Grace is stubborn about opening up.

It is a decent story. About young love, grief, and loss. Which will say i also liked about it. Which is not a predictable love story. It does get kind of boring with Henry and Grace going back and forth with there love for each other.

The cast ensemble was decent. Lili Reinhart delivered a great performance as Grace. Austin Abrams was decent as Henry. The direction is a bit dull with the romantic drama. Which could have been more emotionally moving. The script was lacking the emotional depth with the characters and the content it was going through.
