Great YA Romantic Fantasy Movie: Every Day

Every Day is a unique romantic fantasy movie about a girl who falls for a being that inhabits a different body every day. You can watch it streaming on Hulu now.

Rhiannon is a timid girl who’s jock bf pretty much just uses her for a placeholder so he has a girlfriend to stay sober at parties and drive his drunk butt home. But one day, when she asks him to go on a day trip with her, he accepts. They have an awesome time together–the best day of her life–until she goes to school the next day and he doesn’t remember anything about it.

Soon, Rhiannon starts meeting all these strange kids her age. They each know more about her than they should and start talking about switching bodies. Thinking it’s an elaborate scheme by her friends to tease her, she ignores them at first. But as more and more details add up, she realizes maybe there is truth to the tale.

I absolutely loved this film. It’s strange and wonderful and an adventure that I didn’t know how would end.

It brings up some scary questions. Do we love someone because of the body they come in or because of their soul? What would you do if the love of your life woke up as someone else each morning? Would you still love them in another body? How far would you go to find them when they leaped? And what if that new person has a girlfriend, a medical condition, or a plane ride to deal with? How would you protect your love and yourself?
