Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fall in love with a mysterious spirit that inhabits a different body every day? If you have (be honest), then the new film Every Day might be for you. 

Based on the New York Times best-selling YA novel by David Levithan, the film tells the story of a 16-year-old girl named Rhiannon. Played by Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys), Rhiannon falls in love with a spirit known only as "A," who inhabits a different body daily. Every day, the two have to find each other, and every day finds Rhiannon falling in love with a person in a different body. 

It sounds a bit like Quantum Leap meets 50 First Dates, and the film — directed by Michael Sucsy (Grey Gardens, The Vow) — is also set to deal with issues of gender and race, as A can take the form of anyone regardless of skin color or gender or shape. 

 

Joining Angourie Rice in the cast is Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Debby Ryan (The Suite Life on Deck), Owen Teague (It), and Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming). 

 

It certainly looks like falling in love with somebody new every 24 hours will be more than a bit exhausting. Who knows what may become of Rhiannion and A? Will they ever find some kind of stability, or are they ready to continue this pattern for the rest of their lives?

Every Day arrives in theaters on Feb. 23.
