“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.” - Theodore Finch
All The Bright Places
Reach Out To All The Bright Places


Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.

When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

All The Bright Places conveys what it feels like to navigate something uncontrollable to you, particularly when you feel like you have no one to turn to for help. Anyone you meet might be fighting a silent battle, and this book reminds us to always treat others with kindness and compassion. Finch made Violet feel many positive emotions at once after dealing with survivors guilt due to the loss of her sister. While he helped her, little did anybody even Violet, know that Finch was battling with life too, as he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Yet, he made it his goal, to make Violet be happy like she once was before he decided to seal his own fate.

This movie on Netflix is a romance and drama movie and is more than a hour long. It was released on February 28, 2020. This is an intense, gripping novel and Netflix movie for anyone to read and watch, to experience a rollercoaster of emotions. The film emphasizes the impact that one person can have on another's life and the beautiful moments they leave behind. The ending credits of the movie dedicate themselves to those struggling with mental illness and thoughts of suicide, encouraging all to reach out to their own “bright places” in their lives.

This movie remains to be one of my, possibly, the best movie I have ever watched in my entire life because the ending was so unexpected and made me sob. So many emotions were involved throughout it and I highly recommend this movie to ANYONE, even if you don't experience any mental health issues. It was a life lesson to be taught, and this movie will forever have a place in my heart.
