It is hard to beat coming-of-age movies like Lady Bird, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Booksmart but there is one set for release this year that could be one of the best.

Netflix just announced that All The Bright Places will be released on the streaming service in February and you are going to adore it.

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by the phenomenal Jennifer Niven and it’s a story that will both break and mend your heart.

It will forever be one of the most touching books I have ever read so my hopes are high for the movie. Elle Fanning and Justin Smith take on the lead roles as Violent and Finch and Brett Haley will direct the moving tale.

The ever so talented Jennifer Niven worked with Liz Hannah on the script so we’re in safe hands.

All The Bright Places follows the lives of Theodore Finch and Violet Markey. Theodore aka Finch is completely fascinated with death. Suicide is always on his mind, but little things always stop him from killing himself.
