Amazon Prime Video has released the official Chemical Hearts trailer starring Lili Reinhart (Riverdale, Hustlers) and Austin Abrams (Euphoria, The Walking Dead). Based on the novel Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland, you can watch the trailer in the player above.
Chemical Hearts is an unapologetic coming of age story involving a hopeless romantic and a young woman with a mysterious past. Seventeen-year-old Henry Page (Abrams) has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the kind of once-in-a-lifetime love he’s been hoping for just hasn’t happened yet.
Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town (Reinhart) and it seems all that is about to change. When Grace and Henry are chosen to co-edit the school paper, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious newcomer. As he learns the heartbreaking secret that has changed her life, he finds himself falling in love with her —or at least the person he thinks she is.
The film also stars Sarah Jones, Adhir Kalyan, Kara Young, Coral Peña, and C.J. Hoff.
In addition to starring in the film, Reinhart is making her first executive producer credit alongside Jamin O’Brien (Eighth Grade) and the project is also produced by Page Fifty-Four’s Alex Saks (The Florida Project).
Written, directed, and produced by Richard Tanne (Southside With You) Chemical Hearts will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on August 21.
