To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix: Who’s who and how to watch

PinkNews Staff Writer September 11, 2018

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor (Netflix)

In case you missed it, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is Netflix’s hit new movie—starring gay Twitter’s new crush Noah Centineo.

The film is based on a young adult novel by Jenny Han. The story follows young Lara Jean Covey, whose unsent love letters to all the boys she’s ever loved in life—five in total—mysteriously end up in the hands of the guys she wrote to.

Complicating an already awkward situation, Lara Jean is in love with her best friend and neighbour, Josh Sanderson, who also happens to be her sister Margot’s ex-boyfriend. Lara Jean ends up in a strange love quadrangle when she pretends to be in a relationship with school jock Peter Kavinsky, to make his ex jealous and simultaneously throw Josh off her scent.

You can imagine that the story gets pretty twisty as Lara Jean tries to keep up her fake relationship, hide her feelings for Josh from her sister, and she’s also got a pesky younger sister to contend with.

How to watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

The rom-com hit Netflix on August 17 and has been certified 95 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

If you’re already a Netflix subscriber, log on to the streaming service and dive in.

If you want to watch the film but are not yet a member, sign up for a one-month free trial and get watching.

Who’s who?

To All the Boys features a fairly new crowd of actors. But it has plenty of pedigree behind the scenes—Will Smith is a producer, in fact.

Here are the main characters you need to know:

Lara Jean, played by Lana Condor: To All the Boys‘ lead character. Condor previously played Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Peter Kavinsky, played by Noah Centineo: Bad boy with charm Peter fakes a relationship with Lara Jean. Centineo’s role in the film has got the internet swooning.

To All the Boys is heartwarming and fun and not too dissimilar from these films:

What’s this Noah Centineo business?

Noah Centineo has become gay Twitter’s new crush following his appearance in the film. He also appeared in “Havana,” the music video from Camila Cabello.

LGBT+ Twitter users have gone crazy for Centineo. Case in point, Kiki Ngyuen writing, “i’m gay but Noah Centineo.”

Centineo also got a few other people hot under the collar with his appearance in the Netflix movie:

Centineo is not, in fact, gay, as confirmed by this tweet he posted in August 2017:

Noah was asked if he’s gay. (Twitter)

“I got asked if I was gay the other night because I turned down Casual Sex,” wrote the actor.

“Guys…it’s cool to fuck with a connection not just a girl.”
