An interview with EW: Exclusive first look
Lili Reinhart who also serves as executive producer for the film talks about the darker side of young love by saying,
“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 also about two individual people in their own journey I think it’s beautiful.”“And young love stories that don’t have happy endings are also the 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 f**ing sometimes.” She added.
