Stella Grant 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 patient named Will Newman.

Mundane, dull and insipid movie that I found unwatchable. Like watching paint dry, a real thrill a minute.

I liked this movie, but I didn't love it. It felt like another version of The Fault in Our Stars.

Five Feet Apart is a romantic drama starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson. Both Sprouse and Richardson do a fantastic job with their roles and portray the chemistry well on screen. The film does little to differentiate it self from other romances revolving around an illness, but rather embraces the plot. I found myself getting frustrated, sad and happy for the characters in the film all at once. Despite these praises, there were also times where I did feel some scenes were unnecessary to the plot or awkward in a sense. The ending was definitely surprising, yet still felt rushed and left me unsatisfied. Definitely recommend to the romantic type, but not for everyone. 3.5 Stars @Ruby_Tuesday of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

"Overall, Five Feet Apart is not that great. There are pockets that really stand out as being good but it’s not a consistent occurrence. Haley Lu Richardson is really good in the movie, she’s charming and Cole Sprouse is likable and charming as well. I think they had good chemistry with each other. There are also really strong pockets of sweet moments in the film. But I would say the positive stop there..."

A beautiful young romance turned tragic but happily many people were touched!


PG, 14+

Another film based on The Fault in Our Stars; this time the star-crossed lovers have cystic fibrosis instead of cancer. We know where movies like this are going right from the start, though Five Feet Apart turns out bittersweet rather than bleak. Haley Lu Richardson is the main attraction, and if it hadn't already been clear by now, she is the real deal.

I liked it. There are somethings that I think aren't realistic but what movie, especially one based around medical knowledge, is. Was it the best teen romance where the main pairing is sick? I don't think so, but it wasn't bad. I think The Fault in Our Stars was better though.

Didn't plan to watch this romantic teen medical drama but another library patron recommends it as a new release and "very good." Afraid that the film is too Hollywood that the medical professionals and parents fail the infirmed teens who endanger themselves and other patients, repeatedly. However, give credit to the film makers for bringing awareness of struggles of those with advanced incurable chronic diseases, in this case, young patients with severe cystic fibrosis.
