Hollywood actress Mary Elle Fanning, who stars alongside Justice Smith in the romantic-drama film "All the Bright Places", says it's important to talk about "dealing with grief and pain".

The movie was released on 28 February, 2020 and is streaming on Netflix.

The film tells the story of two characters who struggle with the emotional and physical scars of their past and Fanning thinks the movie highlights an important issue.

The actress, who plays Violet Markey in the movie said, "Dealing with grief and pain is something that isn't really talked about enough."

The film is based on Jennifer Niven’s 2015 best-selling novel. Fanning hopes it will satisfy people who are fans of the book.

She also thinks the Brett Haley-directed movie could help other young people who have gone through similar experiences to her on-screen character.

"Violet's trajectory of her grieving process is something that we really wanted to stay truthful. It's her process, and everyone's process is different, but it's life. Also, it's Jennifer Niven's story. This isn't fiction. This really happened to her, when she was young. She had a boyfriend who this happened to.”

"So, we wanted to make sure that it was handled with care. We also thought about fans of the book. We got to meet a lot of those kids and read letters from kids who this story has helped, and I hope that the movie does the same. There's a real community now. I think it's beautiful to create a community and a conversation," she added.
