Every Day

Rated 3.0

Teenager Rhiannon (Angourie Rice), after a wonderful day with her selfish boyfriend (Justice Smith), learns that he was really “A,” who mysteriously wakes up every morning in a different body, possessing that person for only 24 hours before moving on. The two find themselves falling in love, so A makes the effort to find Rhiannon every day, while she must be on the lookout for him—or her, whoever A may be that day. Writer Jesse Andrews and director Michael Sucsy adapt David Levithan’s novels Every Day and Another Day (one is written from A’s viewpoint, the other from Rhiannon’s), and the result is surprisingly enjoyable, an imaginative allegory for the physical and psychological changes involved in adolescence. The cast is generally good, but Rice’s appealing sweetness is the movie’s main attraction.
