For those looking for a healing touch, let me recommend the lovely #TheHalfOfIt, Alice Wu’s new film on @NetflixIndia, about the joy and pain of growing up, and finding your groove.

“soulmate come in the form of friends too, it isn’t always about romance. Sometimes it’s your best friend who makes you feel whole & understands you the most when the world doesn’t understand at all.” Ellie & Paul are soulmates. Thanks you for coming to my Ted Talk. #TheHalfOfIt pic.twitter.com/mlKSYLZi4E— ✳✳ K R I S T I E ✳✳ (@kristillo_) May 1, 2020
This scene always breaks my heart. But it’s also a major reason I made this movie. We spend the whole film falling in love with Paul, and then he breaks our heart. But I think that’s life. Good people can still have attitudes that hurt us. #TheHalfOfIt #TheHalfOfItNetflix— Alice Wu (@thatalicewu) May 2, 2020
The Half of It (2020): Watch It#TheHalfOfIt proves to be an endearing, broad-spectrum coming-of-age drama. Although it would’ve worked better as a full series to give breathing room to the complexities that come with stories like this that a 100-min movie just can’t fully show. pic.twitter.com/DSZpNyOnHL— Wash or Skip It?

But can we talk about this scene where Paul discovers that Ellie has been writing to food critics for him in secret.— c | midnight sun (@parkerpatronus) May 2, 2020
We really saw Ellie step out of isolation and slowly open up to people ✨💕
Their friendship is top tier 😌#TheHalfOfItNetflix #TheHalfOfIt pic.twitter.com/Ld5ToSdhIf
