Hello, Movie Buffs!
     Directed by Michael Sucsy (The Vow), written by Jesse Andrews (Margot vs. Lily), and based on the novel by David Levithan (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist), Every Day (2018) is a young adult romantic-drama that follows “A” a traveling spirit who wakes up in a different body every day, male or female. On one such day, he wakes up as Justin (Justice Smith) and falls for his girlfriend Rhiannon (Angourice Rice), who finds it odd that Justin is suddenly attentive to her one day and then goes back to being a selfish jerk. Quickly “A” convinces Rhiannon of what he/she is and together the two embark on a star-crossed love affair.
     Every Day (2018) is an entertaining film. The story is good with an interesting concept and love story that leans more towards young adults as well as follows at a decent pace. There is a slight twist to the story is a good addition but it doesn’t deter from its predictability. It is interesting to see what new adventures the pair would go on each day, how they would solve the inevitable problems of tomorrow, and how they would make this relationship work were just some of the questions that intrigued me enough to see this film. The biggest question is was curious and hoping to solve is who or what “A” is? There are mystery and drama amidst the romantic atmosphere that makes this film worth watching.
     The cast performances were good. Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys. The Beguiled.) is a sweet and talented young actress and her performance as Rhiannon is incredible. Rhiannon is stuck in a dead-end relationship and struggles with maintaining a relationship with her father, who has been distancing himself from the family. It seems like meeting “A” could not have come at a better time. Seeing "A" take on a different body every day and how it is trying to maintain a relationship with Rhiannon is I as interesting. Although there is not a main actor who played “A”, each of the cast members who played “A” did so smoothly as there is a clear distinction between “A” and the owner of the body. Amanda Arcuri (Degrassi: Next Class) is okay as Rebecca but her scenes were so few and far in between that she became forgettable. Justice Smith (Detective Pokemon) was also okay with his performance as Justin but he portrays the selfish jerk nicely.

     Overall, Every Day (2018) is a fairly entertaining young adult romantic drama. The story is predictable and does get repetitive but the concept is interesting and the pace is decent. The cast gives some good performances, mainly from those who portray “A” and Angourie Rice who delivers a sweet performance. The moral of the story is to love and live like every day is your last. To not take things or people for granted, to be brave, and look towards the future with joyful anticipation. I recommend this film as a decent watch.
