Netflix has been killing it recently with its slew of teen-focused rom-coms. It seems that with each and every release, the streaming service has found a way to capture the hearts and minds of young people all across the world with these films’ mix of up-and-coming young talent and a story that is just dramatic enough to pull at the heartstrings, but just sweet enough to make you want to put posters on your wall and go on social media to talk about how dreamy the actors and actresses are. And that trend continues with “Let It Snow.”
As seen in the trailer for “Let It Snow,” the film follows a group of high school seniors that deal with love, heartbreak, and friendship all over the course of one extended snowstorm. Honestly, the premise is secondary to the drama and romance, right? And “Let It Snow,” seems to amp up both with the inclusion of multiple converging love stories, instead of the tried-and-true method of just one couple coming together.
The film stars Isabela Merced, Shameik Moore, Odeya Rush, Liv Hewson, Mitchell Hope, Kiernan Shipka, Jacob Batalon, and Joan Cusack. “Let It Snow” is written by Laura Solon, Victoria Strouse, and Kay Kannon, and the film is directed by Luke Snellin. The filmmaker is probably best known for his TV work, including the recent Netflix series “Wanderlust.”
“Let It Snow” will arrive on Netflix on November 8.
Here’s the synopsis:
When a snowstorm hits a small midwestern town on Christmas Eve, a group of high school seniors find their friendships and love lives colliding thanks to a stranded pop star, a stolen keg, a squad of competitive dancers, a mysterious woman covered in tin foil, and an epic party at the local Waffle Town. Come Christmas morning, nothing will be the same. Based on the best-selling book by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle.
