Movie Review – After – Happy and Bittersweet Young Adult Romance

I didn’t realize that this movie was based on fan fiction until after I saw it. That said, I don’t know how it stacks up against the book.

They got me hook, line and sinker. I was really excited waiting for the movie, then it started. Ten minutes into it, …
