All stories show us the perspective we want to see. We can look in much further and take things from real life. There will always be more to every story.
We come in to the movie thinking of these high school sweethearts. They dont have much of a character, they live in their plot, they are their love for each other.
We dont see when girl cheats on boy. We dont see boys countless suicide attempts or his constant anger with life and what it has for him to offer.
We dont see when boy finds someone he loves and loves him back even more then words can explain.
We can only see when boy and girl unite to give each other a hug, their love so warm (?) so pure (?). We don’t see all else. High school sweethearts are cute, we love to watch them.
To be them is another story altogether. To be tied down with them is another.
To have no escape from their relationship because you are just another girl trying to fit in to this formula of boy meets girl. You see, there is no place for the other girl..
She really doesn’t fit in anywhere, except for in boys heart but right now that place is very much not hers no matter how much they both feel it.
High school sweethearts win our hearts in the end. Till they are over. Then thats when the fun starts.
