Netflix has a new movie that melts the hearts and enjoys strong word of mouth as it continues to rise higher in the list of most streamer views.
The film is called Along for the Ride and is based on Sarah Dessen’s novel of the same name in 2009. The film was written by and is Sofia Alvarez’s directorial debut. This name may be familiar to fans of the genre, as Alvarez also wrote the hits of Netflix To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and the 2020 sequel To All The Boys: PS I Still Love You.
The romantic drama revolves around Auden (Emma Pasarow), a recent high school and insomnia graduate, who plans to spend the summer visiting her father and new wife in the small town of Colby Beach.
While there he meets Eli (Belmond Camelli), a colleague of hers with insomnia, and the night owls decide to explore the seaside town together. The couple soon bond as Ellie introduces Auden to the fun, carefree teenage life she never knew she wanted. And their deeper connection leads to romantic sparks that fly.
Along for the Ride may sound like a satanic teen movie full of risky dialogue and overly dramatic character, but do not be fooled by the first impressions. The film is surprisingly thought-provoking and has received far more critical acclaim than films of this genre.
Up Rotten Tomatoes, Along for the Ride has scored a respectable 60%. Critics praised him for his ability to capture the feeling of first love and its message. Viewers seem to be more impressed with the film scoring 74% viewer, which is quite strong.
Along for the Ride is making headlines on Netflix. It currently ranks No. 4 on the list of most-screened movies in English. In addition, in its first 48 hours on Netflix, the film garnered nearly 11 million viewers worldwide (per Top10 Netflix). We currently see it as No. 6 in the US through the Netflix app.
Netflix, meanwhile, is enduring another turbulent week. While the service has plenty of new content to offer subscribers, including a shocking new real-life crime document, streamer has received a significant response after confirming that it will launch an ad-supported level and fight password sharing before its end. year.
These announcements have led to gloomy predictions that a tidal wave of Netflix cancellations could be on the horizon, but for others, those changes are not so dissuasive.
