'Everything, Everything's Maddy & Olly Share A Silent Connection In This Exclusive Clip — VIDEO
Young love is oh-so-sweet in this exclusive Everything, Everything clip. The film, based on Nicola Yoon's YA novel of the same name, follows the story of Maddy, a young woman who has spent her entire life isolated from the world due to an immune system disorder. It's not until the handsome and troubled Olly moves in next door that Maddy begins to earnestly seek a life beyond her housebound existence with her mother and nurse.
Maddy and Olly are classic star-crossed lovers, and in the clip, the power of their connection is clear. Because the teens can't be in the same room with each other, they communicate via text and stolen glances through their windows. Olly is immediately enamored with the girl next-door, but seeing how Maddy responds to his interest is a liberating moment for a character who's had so little interaction with the outside world.
Set to the tune of RY X's "Howling," the teens' powerful bond is established with little more than a couple of texts and shy waves. And yet it still manages to be deeply effective, thanks to the natural chemistry between the film's talented stars, Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson. After watching these two characters flirt so effortlessly without even being in the same room, you are going to need more Maddy and Olly in your life. Thankfully, Everything, Everything hits theaters Friday, May 19.
This sweet scene is just the beginning of Maddy and Olly's relationship. As fans of the book are well-aware, these two are a unique YA couple that provides a whole new twist to the idea of complicated romances. Their meeting at the window is just one example of how they get around a situation that won't allow them to touch, and seeing the ways they evolve as a couple over the course of the story is sure to have you swooning.
Let this clip introduce you to Maddy and Olly's love story. But, fair warning: You're probably going to be buying tickets to the theater by the end, because you will need to know what happens to this adorable couple next.
