Published Jul 29, 2020Riverdale's Lili Reinhart and Euphoria's Austin Abrams are set to star together in Prime Video's newest original coming-of-age film, Chemical Hearts. Ahead of the film's release on August 21, Prime has now dropped the official trailer.
Based on a novel of the same name by Krystal Sutherland, the Richard Tanne-directed film follows two high school seniors as they navigate the trials of adolescence on the backdrop of working at the school newspaper.
Here's the official synopsis:
Chemical Hearts is an unapologetic coming of age story involving a hopeless romantic and a young woman with a mysterious past. Seventeen-year-old Henry Page [Abrams] has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the kind of once-in-a-lifetime love he's been hoping for just hasn't happened yet. Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town [Reinhart] and it seems all that is about to change. When Grace and Henry are chosen to co-edit the school paper, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious newcomer. As he learns the heartbreaking secret that has changed her life, he finds himself falling in love with her —or at least the person he thinks she is.
The film also stars Kara Young, C.J. Hoff, Sarah Jones, Adhir Kalyan and Bruce Altman.
