In “The In-Between”, Joey King loses the love of his life following a tragic accident. Subject to paranormal events, she understands that it is her soul mate calling her.
At the crossroads of fantasy and romance
At the house of Netflix, comedies in rose water come back very often. Often at the top of the daily ranking of the most-watched works on the platform, romantic films have a large audience. The streaming giant owns a thick catalog of original works in the sentimental genre. From teen movies burst like If you knew… Where To all the boys i’ve loved to the most tragic love stories à la All our perfect days.
To those, is added The In-Between a Paramount+ Original Movie which lands directly on Netflix in France. The feature film follows young Tessa and her boyfriend Skylar. While they maintain a romantic relationship of the most magical, a tragic accident comes to upset the lives of these two lovebirds. Skylar dies but stays in between. Taken too early from life, he sends signs to Tessa who tries to find him at all costs.
A drama that plays with science fiction, but above all with our feelings. What a heartbreak to see two people doing for each other parting ways for eternity. This story of mourning, as much for its main protagonist as for the deceased, mix of romance and weirdness. The In-Between attempts to heighten our emotions through its tearful story. Love never dies, and in the face of such a loss, resilience is at the end of the road.
Netflix star Joey King
It’s a safe bet that this drama will touch the hearts of a portion of the Netflix audience. The platform is banking on actress Joey King (Tessa) to draw crowds to The In-Between. Accustomed to romantic productions, the American actress is the headliner of the trilogy The Kissing Booth where she plays Elle Evans, along with Jacob Elordi (Euphoria). These three films brought together a large part of the young adults on the platform, with butterflies in their stomachs.
It is for this reason that the presence of Joey King remains a strong argument. In In The Between, she forms a duet with Kyle Allen. Kim Dickens, John Ortiz, and Celeste O’Connor complete the cast.
The In-Between is available from April 8 on Netflix.
