Elle Evans (Joey King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle’s headed back to high school for her senior year. She has to have a long distance relationship, try to get into her dream college and do it with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), throw in a new male interest she might just fall for the new classmate Marco (Taylor Perez).
When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl, Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him, and just what – and who – her heart truly wants. This is the second of the trilogy of movies by Netflix, the third installment is pened in for 2021.
The movie follows directly on from the first as we follow the long distance relationship, the striving for the finances to join Noah and the distraction of the new interest marco. You spend the movie wondering if they will or wont keep this relationship ongoing. Yes this is a teen movie in its normal writing, but it has a couple of nice twists to keep the viewer interested. Add to that some not too bad acting and you get a movie where you are rooting for the stars and you actually want to see the next one to see what happens in the end.
Lets just hope they dont do what others end up and leaving it on a open note without the funds to finish it off.. Thats just annoying.
Director and screenwriter Vince Marcello returns for THE KISSING BOOTH sequel, based on characters from Beth Reekles’ 2012 young adult book.
