The second official trailer has been released for Stella Meghie’s (Jean of the Joneses) MGM film adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s debut novel titled Everything, Everything. The novel was released September 2015, and debuted at the number 1 spot on the New York Times YA bestseller list. It was sold in 33 territories and 21 languages and has been on the New York Times best-seller list for six consecutive months.
Everything, Everything revolves around Maddy (Amandla Stenberg), a teen who has severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a rare disease that causes her to be allergic to practically everything. She has spent 17 years hiding out in her home, only seeing her mother and her nurse, Carla. But when a boy named Olly (Nick Robinson) moves in next door, Maddy begins to fall in love. Anika Noni Rose also co-stars in the film.
See the official synopsis for the movie below:
What if you couldn’t touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face…or kiss the boy next door? “Everything, Everything” tells the unlikely love story of Maddy, a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won’t let that stop them.
Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything.
Writer, director Meghie directed the script written by Mills Goodloe (Ageof Adaline), and Les Morgenstein and Elysa Dutton of Alloy Entertainment Features will produce.
The film is set to hit theaters on May 19, 2017!
