Based on David Levithan's acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Every Day tells the story of Rhiannon (Angourie Rice), 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.Written by
Pretty clichéd and boring, but the premise is interesting (I have to admit).
'EVERY DAY': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
A romantic drama about a 16-year-old girl who falls in love with a soul that wakes up in a different body every day. The film was directed by Michael Sucsy (who also helmed the 2012 romantic drama 'THE VOW'), and it was scripted by Jesse Andrews (who also wrote 2015's 'ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL'). It's based on the novel (of the same name) by David Levithan. The film stars Angourie Rice, Justice Smith, Debby Ryan and Maria Bello. It's received mostly negative reviews from critics, and it's performed very modestly at the Box Office so far as well. I found it to be pretty clichéd and boring, but the premise is interesting (I have to admit).
The film tells the story of a 16-year-old girl named Rhiannon (Rice). Rhiannon is popular at school, and she has an attractive boyfriend (Smith), but something is still missing in her life (and her bf is abusive too). Then, unbeknownst to her, she falls in love with a spirit called A. A wakes up in a different body every day, and starts a different (new) life. Rhiannon is the first person A has ever told this to. A very complicated romance develops between the two (of course).
The film feels like your pretty standard YA book developed into a movie. It's a shame because I really like the premise for it, it just feels like they could have done so much more with it. I don't know how generic, or bad, the book is, but this film adaptation is definitely unimpressive and boring. Fans might still enjoy it, but most likely it's just because they love the book so much.
