   Viewers fell in love with Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) in August 2018 with the release of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix. That being said, many were excited for To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. The highly anticipated film was just as good as fans could imagine. 

   Soon after Lara Jean and Peter make their relationship official, Lara Jean receives a letter from the recipient of her final love note, John Ambrose (Jordan Fisher). Lara Jean and John Ambrose coincidentally volunteer to work at the same nursing home where the characters and audience find that there are still feelings between the two. Both the audience and Lara Jean are left to figure out her relationship with both Peter and John Ambrose.

   Lara Jean looks for advice from one of the nursing home’s residents, Stormy (Holland Taylor).  Stormy helps mentor Lara Jean while also serving as some of the movie’s comedic relief. At the same time the movie also gives a glimpse of the relationship between Lara Jean’s father, known as Dr. Covey (John Corbett) and neighbor Trina Rothschild (Sarayu Blue).  

   The movie also touched on Korean New Year. Lara Jean and her sister, Kitty (Anna Cathcart) wear traditional Korean dresses in the film, bringing a huge light to Asian representation in Hollywood.  

   As someone who loved the first film, I equally enjoyed this one.  I fell in love with Lara Jean and Peter just as I did in the first. And just like the first (and every other sappy teenage romcom does), this movie also made me cry.  

   I’m also a huge fan of the soundtrack. It includes several songs made just for the movie but regardless complemented the film perfectly.

   Personally, I couldn’t be more excited to see Part 3 of the trilogy rumored to be released Fall 2020.
