THE HALF OF IT
2020, Netflix, 104 min, USA, Dir: Alice Wu

Bookish introvert Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis) is perfectly content with her life: watching old movies with her widowed father and ghostwriting papers for her high school classmates to help pay the bills. But her side gig turns personal when lovelorn jock Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer) hires her to craft love notes to Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire) - a smart, popular girl out of both their leagues ... and Ellie’s own secret crush. Just as the duo’s plan begins to work, a new wrinkle emerges: Ellie and Paul have fallen into a deep friendship neither could have anticipated, giving rise to a surprising love triangle. Writer-director Alice Wu's second feature is a heartfelt comedy-of-errors about searching for perfect love - and finding yourself in the process.
