Based on the popular young adult novel, Words on Bathroom Walls will be released in select theaters and drive-ins on Friday August 21.
I worked in mental health for years (my bachelor’s is in psychology) and am so thrilled to see a movie like this to open minds and hearts about people living with mental illness.
As the mom of a tween and teen, I know mental health in young people is so important. That is truer now in the world we’re living in with schools closed, sports cancelled, lockdowns and isolation, than it has ever been before in my lifetime.
Take a look at the synopsis and trailer below. It looks SO GOOD! I can’t wait to watch with my family!
I have a book giveaway at the end of this post, and 5 winners will each get a paperback copy of Words on Bathroom Walls.
WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS In Theaters August 21
WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS tells the story of witty and introspective Adam (Charlie Plummer), who appears to be your typical young adult – a little unkempt with raging hormones and excited about a future pursuing his dream of becoming a chef. Expelled halfway through his senior year following an incident in chemistry class, Adam is diagnosed with a mental illness. Sent to a Catholic academy to finish out his term, Adam has little hope of fitting in and just wants to keep his illness secret until he can enroll in culinary school.
But when he meets outspoken and fiercely intelligent Maya (Taylor Russell), there is an instant soulful and comforting connection. As their romance deepens, she inspires him to open his heart and not be defined by his condition. Now, with the love and support of his girlfriend and family, Adam is hopeful for the very first time that he can see the light and triumph over the challenges that lie ahead.
