What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Five Feet Apart is a teen romance based on the best-selling YA novel by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis. Stella (Haley Lu Richardson) and Will (Cole Sprouse) are polar opposites, but the one thing they have in common is that they're both being treated for cystic fibrosis (CF) in the same hospital. The life-threatening disease attacks their lungs and requires them to stay six feet apart at all times. But despite their forced distance, Stella and Will slowly start to fall in love. The book is hugely popular with teens, as are stars Richardson and Sprouse, so teens will likely want to see this one. Expect heavy themes, swearing, and sexual references.
