The film Five Feet Apart has taken the world by storm. Everyone who wants to see it has seen it. Five Feet Apart is a romantic drama starring Mikki Daughtry as Tobias Iaconis, the movie star Cole Sprouse as Will Newman and Haley Lu Richardson as Stella Grant.

Stella Grant is a women with cystic fibrosis who uses social media to cope with her illness and to inform others about CF. Soon after the movie starts she meets a man named Will Newman who also has CF. He is also in the hospital for medication trials to try to get rid of a very contagious bacterial infection called B. cepacia that is in his lungs.

Soon after meeting, Stella finds out that he is refusing his regimen in favor of taking risks, breaking the rules, and having fun. Stella, on the other hand, is very neat and likes to feel in control of her life, so she follows her regimen very strictly. Stella gets stressed that Will is not following his regimen, so she pleads to him that he should. He agrees under one condition: he gets to draw her.

In the beginning Stella dislikes Will, but they soon grow closer and start to fall for each other, making their illness seem like a prison they can escape. Stella’s favorite nurse Barbra  soon sees the two falling for each other and tries to stop them. Stella and Will become very frustrated and confront Barbra, asking her why they can’t be in love besides the obvious reasons. She reveals that she has seen two CF patients fall in love and both lost their lives because of it. She doesn’t want to lose them also.

Later in the film Will discovers that Stella’s sister died in a cliff diving accident and Stella blames herself when she had no control over what happened. Will helps Stella release that her life is more than CF and she “takes a foot back” so they each hold the end of a pool cue. The rest is up to you find out.
