Netflix just released the movie adaptation of Jennifer Niven’s bestseller, All The Bright Places. The book was published five years ago and made a huge impact on the teen mental-health scene. The story talks about two young people, who have a troubled past and try finding strength in each other.
So does the movie do justice to the book? Here are tweets you should read before you stream the movie.
TW: Suicide, depression— Chrisi aka Cat Cal Calore’s Mom (@samewhitelight) February 28, 2020
Friendly reminder that #AlltheBrightPlaces is not a cheesy romcom. The story is about two depressed people and one of them is highly suicidal and since i know that Netflix won’t post a trigger warning i just wanted to let you know.
I read this book while I was very depressed, it touched me in so many ways as 15 year old who felt so alone. This book encouraged me to reach out for help. Watching the movie brings back so many emotions. #AlltheBrightPlaces— *✭˚ speak yourself *✭˚ (@squishyytaee) February 28, 2020
#AlltheBrightPlaces Overall a good film, I didn’t cry as much as I did in the book. Finch little sister was non existent which kinda annoyed me. They also changed the start of the book :(. Did non book readers understand what Finch mental health condition was?— Kayla (@mustbenicexx) February 28, 2020

Just finished #AllTheBrightPlacesMovie waited years amd years for this and even though things weren’t exactly like the book from way way back the movie was still worth waiting for and brought up all the feels thanks again @jenniferniven #allthebrightplaces— kurt (@TuxedoPanda94) February 28, 2020
i feel like justice smith was INCREDIBLE and so was elle fanning my only issue was with the pacing and the lack of more intimate and deep scenes like the family dinners, going to the bookstore, his birthday etc that build up more emotions and chemistry #AlltheBrightPlaces— tala !! #AllTheBrightPlaces (@ultratala) February 28, 2020
#AllTheBrightPlacesMovie was so beautiful. I’m feeling very overwhelmed right now. I think it was a big emotional release just watching it.

A few years back I read #AlltheBrightPlaces and fell in love with it all, so naturally upon realising the movie was on Netflix, I immediately watched it. Oh boy did I feel the same emotions all over again 😭🙌🏻— Layanah shelford (@LayanahShelford) February 28, 2020
