The best Everything, Everything movie quotes below feature some of the best dialogue from this film about one teen who yearns to go outside but can't, due to an illness. The romantic drama was directed by Stella Meghie using a screenplay J. Mills Goodloe adapted from the book of the same name by Nicola Yoon and opened theatrically in the United states on May 19, 2017.
In Everything, Everything, Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) is an 18-year-old girl who spends 100% of her time inside her home due to an illness. Her whole life is limited to time within that home where she's taken care of by physician mother Pauline (Anika Noni Rose) and nurse Carla (Ana de la Reguera). But when Olly (Nick Robinson) and his family move in next door, Maddy's life changes.
Maddy and Olly form a friendship through email and text messages. Carla allows Olly to visit one day, which leads to her firing and Pauline's anger. This move only pushes Maddy to fight harder to see Olly, including going outside to find out for herself what exactly would happen if she leaves home. What Maddy finds in the process surprises her, and not just about her health.
