It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the movie adaptation of Krystal Sutherland’s Our Chemical Hearts. But now a little bit of news just popped up recently regarding the release date and where it can be seen.
Chemical Hearts, as it’s now called for the film, which will star Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart as Grace and Paper Towns’ Austin Abrams as Henry, will be released on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, August 21st.
The film, which was also produced by Reinhart, and executive produced by Sutherland, also includes Sarah Jones, Adhir Kalyan, Shannon Walsh, C.J. Hoff, and Bruce Altman.
Here’s the overview of the book the film is adapted from:
A bittersweet, funny, sad story of friendship, first love, and heartache, all rolled into one spellbinding tale for fans of John Green, Rainbow Rowell and E. Lockhart.
Henry Page, a hopeless romantic and film buff, is smitten as soon as Grace Town walks into his classroom. But Grace – who looks in need of a good bath, is dressed in guy’s clothing, and walks with a cane – is unlike any leading lady he’s ever obsessed over.
When Henry and Grace are both offered positions as editors of their high school newspaper, the mystery of Grace begins to captivate him.
Why does she visit a graveyard every afternoon?
What secret does she keep locked away in her bedroom?
Above all, why is Grace Town so deeply sad?
Before he knows it, Henry is sure that he is the one to unlock her happiness. But Grace is capricious, changeable, infuriating, and, above all, damaged. Henry will need to be the strongest he has ever been to survive this particular love story.
