Ready to see Lili Reinhart deal with more secrets and teen angst? Good news is that there probably won’t be any murder plots on top of it.
In the trailer for Amazon’s Chemical Hearts, Reinhart plays mysterious transfer student Grace who has a heartbreaking secret. She meets hopeless romantic Henry (Austin Abrams) when they are assigned to co-edit their school’s newspaper.
On what drew her to the role, Reinhart told EW.
“I am not the typical person who loves rom-coms and I don’t necessarily seek romantic movies, but the fact that this is a love story [that’s] also about two individual people in their own journeys I think is beautiful. And young love stories that don’t have happy endings are also stories that need to be told. Chemical Hearts is the kind of movie that portrays young love in a realistic light in the sense that it f—ing hurts sometimes.”
So basically, bring some tissues.
Chemical Hearts hits Amazon Prime on Aug. 21.
