20 Highest-Grossing Teen Romance Movies
9. Five Feet Apart
Five Feet Apart exists in a particular vein of weepy teen dramas. It’s one that focuses on two teenagers with cystic fibrosis who can’t get too close to one another for fear of making each other sicker. That’s the tragic wrench at the heart of their relationship, and it’s part of what makes the premise so inherently interesting.
Although the movie doesn’t totally work, it’s largely saved by its leads and the chemistry between them. Both Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson are remarkably good actors. Not gonna lie, they can do pretty much anything and make it captivating. That’s why the movie made $45 million domestically.
