Ha­vana Camila Ca­bello

Fi­nally out of Ni­cholas Sparks nov­els to adapt, and in­spired by the suc­cess of films that ro­man­ti­cise se­ri­ous ill­ness and in­jury (Me Be­fore You, A Walk to Re­mem­ber, The Fault in Our Stars), cinema turns to Camila Ca­bello for its lat­est “have a white wine in the cinema and a cry on the bus on the way home” epic. Kather­ine Lang­ford from 13 Rea­sons Why is Katie, a girl who, due to a hor­rific car ac­ci­dent on the way home from prom, is left with only half a heart. The other half is, you guessed it, be­ing do­nated by a hand­some stranger (Noah Cen­ti­neo) in Ha­vana, Cuba. Can hand­some he­li­copter pi­lot Bobby (Ansel El­gort) fly to east At­lanta with the heart in time? Will Katie fall for the man who saved her life by giv­ing her half a heart, or will Bobby steal her whole heart? Teens love it, see­ing the movie 45 times in a row in cin­e­mas and flood­ing the in­ter­net with fan­fic, but the Bri­tish Med­i­cal Coun­cil calls the plot­line “com­pletely unbelievable”, adding: “Please don’t teach teenagers you can sur­vive with half a heart. That’s not med­i­cally pos­si­ble.”
