Elle Fanning & Justice Smith in Romance 'All the Bright Places' Trailer
"There are bright places… Even in dark times. We can be that bright place." Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an indie romance titled All the Bright Places, the latest film made by acclaimed director Brett Haley (I'll See You in My Dreams, The Hero, Hearts Beat Loud). Adapted from Jennifer Niven's novel, the film tells the story of Violet and Theodore, who meet and change each other's lives forever. As they struggle with the emotional and physical scars of their past, they discover that even the smallest places and moments mean something. Elle Fanning & Justice Smith, star as Violet Markey & Theodore Finch, they're joined by Alexandra Shipp, Keegan-Michael Key, Kelli O'Hara, Lamar Johnson, Sofia Hasmik, Felix Mallard, Virginia Gardner, and Luke Wilson. This looks a lot like so many other young romance films, but there's something else about this one. And it's from Brett Haley, which means I have to watch it anyway.
