MAX’s Turtles All the Way Down | Felix Mallard and Cree on Emotional Complex Characters

Cree in Turtles All the Way Down

Author John Green is renowned for his ability to craft narratives around youthful, complex, and emotionally charged characters. In the much-awaited Turtles All the Way Down, the young characters are all embroiled in personal battles, but it is the protagonist’s relentless struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) that forms the heart of the story.

The film stars Isabela Merced (Madam Web), Cree (Mr. Iglesias), Felix Mallard (Ginny & Georgia), and Maliq Johnson (The Many Saints of Newark). Hannah Marks (Don’t Make Me Go) directed the film based on John Green’s novel.

Here is the official synopsis:

Turtles All the Way Down tackles anxiety through its 17-year-old protagonist, Aza Holmes. It’s not easy being Aza, but she’s trying…trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, and a good student, all while navigating an endless barrage of invasive, obsessive thoughts that she cannot control. When she connects with Davis, her childhood crush, Aza is confronted with fundamental questions about her potential for love, happiness, friendship, and hope.
