Netflix has released the trailer for The Half of It, the romantic comedy launching on the streaming service on May 1, 2020. Written and directed by Alice Wu (Saving Face), the film stars Leah Lewis, Daniel Diemer, Alexxis Lemire, Enrique Murciano, Wolfgang Novogratz, Catherine Curtin with Becky Ann Baker and Collin Chou.
In The Half of It, bookish introvert Ellie Chu is perfectly content with her life: watching old movies with her widowed father and ghostwriting papers for her high school classmates to help pay the bills.
But her side gig turns personal when lovelorn jock Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer) hires her to craft love notes to Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire) – a smart, popular girl out of both their leagues… and Ellie’s own secret crush.
Just as the duo’s plan begins to work, a new wrinkle emerges: Ellie and Paul have fallen into a deep friendship neither could have anticipated, giving rise to a surprising love triangle.
The Half of It is a heartfelt comedy-of-errors about searching for perfect love—and finding yourself in the process. The film was produced by Anthony Bregman, M. Blair Breard, and Wu.
In addition to the trailer and key art, we’re also including more photos from the film.
