The Half of It is a 2020 American coming-of-age comedy-drama film written and directed by Alice Wu. It stars Leah Lewis, Daniel Diemer, Alexxis Lemire, and Collin Chou. Netflix released the film on May 1, 2020 to positive reviews. The film received the Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.

Friendless student Ellie Chu lives in the remote town of Squahamish, where she makes extra money writing homework papers for her fellow students. She lives with her widowed father and performs most of his duties as station master and signalman. She is approached by Paul Munsky, an inarticulate football player, to write a love letter to Aster Flores, a girl at their school. Ellie is secretly in love with Aster and initially refuses, but accepts the work after learning that her home's electricity will be shut off if they fail to make a minimum payment. Aster is dating Trig, a boy from a wealthy family, and Ellie (posing as Paul) begins a heartfelt correspondence with Aster in letters and text messages. The two begin to connect over their shared interests in literature and art, though Aster believes she is communicating with Paul. Meanwhile, Ellie's English teacher encourages her to apply to Grinnell College, but Ellie plans to stay in Squahamish, despite being unhappy there, because she doesn't want to leave her father.

Ellie sets up Paul on a date with Aster, but it goes badly because Paul is unable to converse with her like Ellie can. Ellie regards this as the end of their attempts, but after Paul defends her from bullies, she agrees to teach him about art and literature. Ellie and Paul begin to bond as they open up about their familial struggles. Paul's second date with Aster goes as badly as the first, but Ellie saves the evening by texting Aster, pretending to be Paul, who abruptly professes his romantic interest in Aster, and later tells Ellie that he kissed her. Paul brings Ellie to a party and takes her to his home after she becomes intoxicated, where he sees letters in her bag addressed to food critics, presumably about his sausage creations.

Aster invites Ellie to spend the day together. She takes her to a hidden hot spring where they swim and share an intimate conversation. Aster reveals that Trig intends to marry her, while Ellie reveals that she does not believe in God and talks about her deceased mother. Meanwhile, at Ellie's house, Paul and her father bond as they make sausages. Later, Ellie watches from her window as Paul and Aster kiss, and she decides to apply to Grinnell. After a game, mistakenly believing that she loves him, and having developed feelings for her, Paul attempts to kiss Ellie, but she rejects him. Aster sees them and walks away angrily. Paul realizes that Ellie loves Aster and, due to his religious upbringing, tells Ellie that it is a sin. While cooking together again, Ellie's father and Paul have a conversation about love. Trig proposes to Aster at a church service, but Ellie and Paul publicly interrupt the moment. Aster realizes that Ellie wrote the letters and texts to her, slaps Paul, and storms out.

Before leaving for Grinnell, Ellie apologizes to Aster for deceiving her. Aster admits she may have had feelings for Ellie and that she is applying to art school. Ellie kisses Aster and tells her that she'll see her in a couple of years. Paul sees Ellie off at the train platform and tells her that his sausages have received good reviews, and that he'll keep visiting her father. As in Ek Villain, the movie they watched together, Paul runs besides the train as it leaves. Ellie laughs at his silliness, then observes the passengers around her as she goes off to start a new journey in her life.

Cast

The Half of It adalah film bergenre komedi romantis yang dirilis pada 1 Mei 2020 yang didistribusikan penyedia layanan media streaming digital Netflix. Film ini ditulis dan disutradarai oleh Alice Wu, diperankan oleh Leah Lewis, Daniel Diemer, Alexxis Lemire, dan Collin Chou. Cerita yang diangkat dalam film ini berpusat pada tokoh Eliie Chu, seorang siswa SMA beretnis Tionghoa satu-satunya di sebuah kota kecil Squahamish dengan budaya masyarakat yang konservatif, yang berusaha mengungkap jati dirinya sebagai lesbian.

Film ini mendapat sambutan baik dari para kritikus film dan sempat diganjar penghargaan Founders Award pada Festival Film Tribeca 2020 untuk nominasi Best Narrative Feature.

Cerita berlatar di sebuah kota kecil di barat daya Amerika Serikat bernama Squahamish seputar kehidupan seorang remaja putri bernama Ellie Chu (diperankan Leah Lewis). Ia merupakan satu-satunya siswa beretnis Tiongkok dan tak punya banyak teman, ia juga terkenal sebagai siswa pintar yang suka menjadi "joki" untuk mengerjakan tugas teman-temannya demi uang, meski gurunya tahu akan perbuatan ilegal tersebut namun mereka tak terlalu memperdulikannya.

Suatu hari ia didatangi oleh Paul Munsky (diperankan Daniel Diemer), seorang laki-laki polos pemain sepak bola dan pemilik toko sosis yang juga tetangga Ellie Chu, Paul meminta Ellie membuat surat cinta kepada pujaannya, Aster Flores (diperankan Alexxis Lemire), perempuan tercantik dan populer di sekolah yang sebenarnya juga telah berpacaran dengan pemuda bernama Trig.

Ellie Chu mengiyakan, ia membuatkan surat dengan atas nama Paul meski sebenarnya Ellie memang memendam rasa kepada Aster. Aster membalas, surat menyurat itu kemudian semakin intens dan Ellie semakin tertarik dengan Aster, tak hanya membantu Paul lewat surat, Ellie juga membantunya untuk lebih akrab berkomunikasi dengan Aster.

Paul dan Aster semakin akrab, namun Ellie berada di tengah-tengah hubungan tersebut. Ia memang memendam rasa tertarik pada Aster, namun hubungannya dan Paul kini tak lagi sebagai rekan bisnis. Paul memang datang dengan karakter bodoh namun ia tulus, beberapa kali ia membela Ellie dari perundungan, mereka mulai berteman bahkan Paul mungkin teman pertama dan satu-satunya bagi Ellie, Ellie bimbang, apakah ia mulai mencintai Paul atau masih murni sebatas pekerjaan.

Aster tahu sebenarnya Ellie memendam rasa padanya. Mereka pergi bersama ke pemandian air panas dan memulai perbincangan intim berbagi masalah. Aster mengungkapkan bahwa Trig mau menikahinya, sedangkan Ellie membicarakan ketidakpercayaannya terhadap Tuhan. Ellie melihat Paul dan Aster berciuman, ia kecewa dan mengurungkan niat tetap berkuliah di Squahamish dan memilih ke Grinnel. Beberapa waktu kemudian Paul mencoba mencium Ellie karena ia punya firasat bahwa Ellie suka padanya, namun Ellie menolak, kejadian itu dilihat pula oleh Aster yang akhirnya marah dan kecewa.

Paul tahu Ellie menyukai Aster, namun sebagai orang yang terdidik di lingkungan gereja dan masyarakat konservatif, ia tak bisa menerimanya karena menganggapnya sebagai dosa. Trig melamar Aster saat pelayanan gereka, namun kejadian itu digagalkan oleh Ellie dan Paul, Aster telah tahu bahwa surat yang selama ini ia terima sebenarnya berasal dari Ellie, ia melampiaskan amarahnya dengan menampar Paul dan meninggalkan gereja.

Sudah saatnya Ellie pergi ke Grinnel untuk kuliah, ia meminta maaf kepada Aster atas surat-suratnya. Ellie memberanikan diri mencium Aster, Aster tak menolak namun juga tak memberi balasan, Paul melihatnya, ia hanya berteriak mengatakan bahwa sosis buatannya mendapat ulasan yang baik dari konsumen.
