18-year-old Maddy has a serious crush on the boy next door and the feeling is mutual. But, how can she kiss him when her illness prohibits her from ever leaving the confines of her home?
All Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) wants is to live a normal life, and to do all the regular things teenagers do. But, as a sufferer of SCID, an immuno-deficiency disease which means contact with other people and the outside world can have deadly consequences, she is a prisoner in her own home.
Looked after by her mum Pauline (Anika Noni Rose) and nurse Carla (Ana de la Reguera), Maddy has lived within her modified, hermetically sealed environment for 15 years.
But she yearns to swim in the ocean and feel the sunshine on her face, and when Olly (Nick Robinson) moves in next door with his family, her desire to walk out her front door grows stronger. When Olly writes his mobile number down for Maddy to see, love quickly blossoms.
The only thing separating the two from meeting up is four walls, some thick glass and Maddy’s overprotective mother. Is this love meant to be or is it doomed from the get-go?
Everything, Everything is based on the Nicola Yoon novel of the same name, which was an instant hit when released in 2015. Directed by Stella Meghie (Jean of the Joneses), the film features Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games), Nick Robinson (The 5th Wave), and Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls).
