Miles Halter (Charlie Plummer) is fascinated by famous last words – and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called The Great Perhaps.
Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek boarding school where he meets Alaska Young (Kristine Froseth). Gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, screwed up and utterly fascinating she pulls Miles into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart.
But when tragedy strikes, and Miles comes face-to-face with death, he discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally. Nothing will ever be the same.
John Green tweeted: “I spoke to Kristine and Charlie on the phone yesterday and it was really special to have a conversation with the people who will become Miles and Alaska. I’m so grateful to them and to everyone involved with the Looking for Alaska series. It’s all starting to feel very real!”
“I did get to see both of these acrors’ auditions, and they are both truly brilliant and embody the characters to me. They’re both also fans of the book, which is nice!”
Kristine Froseth currently stars in The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair on SkyWitness in the UK, and in the Netflix features Sierra Burgess Is A Loser and Apostle.
