“FIVE FEET APART”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - View from the couch -

“Jane the Vir­gin” vet­eran Justin Bal­doni is a film­maker as well as an ac­tor, with much of his be­hind-the-cam­era work trained on sto­ries in­volv­ing health con­cerns – so he was a rather log­i­cal choice to di­rect this drama about two cys­tic fi­bro­sis pa­tients, played by Ha­ley Lu Richard­son (“Split”) and Cole Sprouse (alias Jug­head on tele­vi­sion’s “Riverdale”), who must main­tain a phys­i­cal dis­tance from each other while start­ing a romance. Their deep­en­ing re­la­tion­ship im­pacts cer­tain de­ci­sions fac­ing them about their fu­tures, both re­spec­tive and shared. Par­min­der Na­gra (“ER”) and Claire For­lani (“Meet Joe Black”) also are in the cast of the nat­u­rally emo­tional tale. (PG-13:
