Anika Noni Rose And Amandla Stenberg Discuss “Everything, Everything” With BOSSIP
Two stars of Hollywood’s new romance drama recently chatted with BOSSIP about the film. “Everything, Everything” stars two of our favorite socially conscious actresses; Amandla Stenberg and Anika Noni Rose.
Amandla plays Maddy, a curious teen who’s allergic to everything in the outside world but risks it all for a heart-stopping chance at love with her neighbor Olly, while Anika plays her protective mom Dr. Whittier who fiercely shields and protects her with unwavering desperation.
BOSSIP quickly found out that the film is about much more than teenage angst when we had a chance to preview it ahead of its premiere. Brimming with black girl magic, “Everything, Everything” is directed by Stella Meghie (below) and based on a book written by black female author Nicola Yoon.
Dani Canada and Alex recently had a chance to sit down with the cast to discuss the film’s sweet swirly romance, the real life mother/daughter-like bond formed between Anika and Amandla, and expectations for the film.
“Everything, Everything” hits theaters nationwide May 19.
