"All the Bright Places" Film Analysis
All the action happened at the beginning of the film when the characters' life stories are introduced and at the end of the film when an unexpected twist happens, but the middle of the film seems to be without interesting action.
The movie has a delicate balance between issues of grief, suicide, mental illness, and investing viewers in a cute romance. In my opinion "All The Bright Places" should be shown to everyone– adults, teenagers, and even middle-schoolers. There is a lesson in every scene. It is informative of the signs of suicide, the struggles of mental illness, and it is instructive on how to pull oneself out of the darkness and into a brighter place. There is a positive message said by Violet at the end of the film: "There's beauty in the most unexpected of places. And that there are bright places, even in dark times. And that if there isn't, you can be that bright place." This film is real life, and it is a step in the right direction toward establishing an environment suitable to open discussions about emotions, especially amongst men. The film emphasizes the impact that one person can have on the lives of others, as well as the lovely memories they leave behind. The film's closing credits dedicate themselves to individuals suffering from mental illness and suicidal thoughts, encouraging everyone to find their own "bright places" in their lives.
