‘All My Life’ Trailer: Jessica Rothe And Harry Shum Jr. Fall In Love In This Tragic Romance

Just go ahead and bring your Kleenex for this one. All My Life is based on the true story of Solomon Chau and Jennifer Carter, who meet, fall in love, and plan the perfect wedding, only to learn that he is suffering from a terminal illness. It’s the kind of story that gets told on the big screen a lot lately, but the real-world aspect guarantees the waterworks will be turned all the way up.

The film is led by Happy Death Day breakout Jessica Rothe and Glee actor Harry Shum Jr. as the loving couple, who meet and quickly fall head over heels for one another, with all the gumball sweet music to accompany their courtship. It all looks fairly typical of the genre, which is odd when you realize Marc Meyers, who directed My Friend Dahmer of all things, is the guy behind the camera. That’s quite a transition.

Also starring Kyle Allen, Chrissie Fit, Jay Pharoah, Marielle Scott, Ever Carradine, and Keala Settle, All My Life opens December 4th.

SYNOPSIS: Based on the powerful true love story that inspired an entire nation, All My Life follows the journey of an engaged couple who make the difficult decision to accelerate their wedding in the wake of a devastating discovery. Jennifer Carter (Jessica Rothe, the Happy Death Day films) and Solomon Chau (Harry Shum Jr, Crazy Rich Asians) are a sweet, fun-loving, newly engaged couple whose whole life seems ahead of them. But when Sol is diagnosed with terminal liver cancer in December, their plans for a summer wedding become impossible. In a race against time, Jenn and Sol’s friends and family launch an online fundraiser to help the couple create their dream wedding in just two weeks. In the process, they unleash an outpouring of generosity and attention from people around the world who want to celebrate the power of love with them. Through it all, Jenn and Sol’s commitment to each other only deepens, becoming a heartwarming reminder that the strength of true love knows no limits.
