This past Friday, Everything, Everything was released in theaters. The film takes place in the life of 18 year old Maddy, who has an illness that effects her immune system, therefore preventing her from leaving her home.
Until she met Olly, she didn’t risk stepping one foot outside of her house, but he opened a window for her to explore the world outside. She is unable to do many of the things we take for granted each day, like go to school, a sporting event, or a school dance.
