Every Day

every day

Not just another generically painful YA adaptation, Every Day gets high marks for its intriguing premise alone: an entity that goes by the name of “A” wakes up in a different body every single day. A eventually falls hard for Rhiannon (Angourie Rice), and the story details their efforts to keep a relationship going when one of the partners in it is constantly changing looks, feels, colors and kissing game.

This being a young adult romance, there is but a superficial probing into what being trapped in somebody else’s body, sharing their memories and hurts, would mean to those involved with it. One cannot help but wonder what masters of mind-bending genre, think a Shane Carruth or a Charlie Kaufman, would do with such material.

Nevertheless, the movie possesses such a kind outlook on the world, reserving zero judgement for even the characters that most movies would label as villains, that it remains difficult not to smile throughout it all. Similarly, its conclusion is way more perceptive than movies of its ilk. While I would not watch this movie every day, I certainly would not mind seeing it again.
