CBS Films has debuted the new trailer and poster for Five Feet Apart, the romantic drama starring Haley Lu Richardson (Split, The Edge of Seventeen) and Cole Sprouse (Riverdale, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody). The film opens in theaters on March 15, 2019.
Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) is every bit a seventeen-year-old… she’s attached to her laptop and loves her best friends. But unlike most teenagers, she spends much of her time living in a hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control – all of which is put to the test when she meets an impossibly charming fellow CF patient named Will Newman (Cole Sprouse).
There’s an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction. Further complicating matters is Will’s potentially dangerous rebellion against his ongoing medical treatment. Stella gradually inspires Will to live life to the fullest, but can she ultimately save the person she loves when even a single touch is off limits?
The Five Feet Apart cast also includes Moises Arias, Kimberly Hébert Gregory, Paraminder Nagra, and Claire Forlani.
Justin Baldoni (Jane the Virgin, My Last Days) directed the film from a script by Mikki Daughtry (Sleep Tight, The Children) & Tobias Iaconis (Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia, The Children). The movie was produced by Cathy Schulman (The Foreigner, The Space Between Us) and Baldoni.
