The new trailer for the adaptation of Jandy Nelson‘s YA novel The Sky is Everywhere is giving me some serious The Fault in Their Stars and The Perks of Being a Wallflower energy.
Directed by Josephine Decker from a script adapted by Nelson, the movie takes place in Northern California and follows 17-year-old Lennie Walker (Grace Kaufman), a musical prodigy who lives with her grandmother (Cherry Jones) and Big (Jason Segel), Lennie’s uncle. Lennie is struggling with grief following the sudden loss of her older sister, Bailey (Havana Rose Liu). When Joe Fontaine (Jacques Colimon), the charismatic new guy at school, enters Lennie’s life, she’s drawn to him.
But Lennie’s complicated relationship with her sister’s devastated boyfriend, Toby (Pico Alexander), starts to have an impact on Lennie and Joe’s romance. Through her imagination and honest, conflicted heart, Lennie navigates first love and first loss to create a song of her own. The film also stars Julia Schlaeper and Ji-young Yoo.
The Sky Is Everywhere comes from Apple Original Films, A24, Di Novi Pictures and Alice the Who. The producers are Denise Di Novi (Little Women) and Margaret French Isaac (Stepmom) for Di Novi Pictures, alongside Decker and Allison Rose Carter (Shirley) for Alice the Who. Nelson and Joshua Bachove (Minari) executive produce.
