In this unexpected pairing, Lively and Baldoni bring their characters, Lily Bloom and Ryle Kincaid, to life. Lily, a florist with a penchant for flowers and romance, is portrayed by Blake Lively, who traded her glamorous wardrobe for a bulky camouflage suit.
On the other side of the romantic equation, Baldoni takes on the role of Ryle, a neurosurgeon, rocking a black tee under a rainbow-patterned onesie.
The attire choices might raise eyebrows, but they’re all part of a scene from the book. Ryle’s quirky onesie is donned to take advantage of a nearby bar offering free beer to anyone wearing such an outfit during a Boston Bruins game. It’s a playful touch that adds a dash of whimsy to the unfolding love story.
The ensemble cast, featuring comedians Jenny Slate and Hasan Minhaj, adds a layer of humor to the romantic drama.
Additionally, the younger versions of Lily Bloom and Atlas Corrigan, played by Isabela Ferrer and Alex Neustaedter, promise to bring a nostalgic touch to the narrative.
