All The Bright Places dropped on Netflix this week and people have been left devastated, even those who knew the ending from the book.

It's based on the novel of the same name by Jennifer Niven and is about two troubled teens who find each other while struggling with mental health issues.

But it doesn't end with them healing each other - far from it - in fact, *major spoiler alert* one of the pair, Theodore Finch (Justice Smith) ends up committing suicide.

Elle Fanning stars as Violet in the movie based on the book by Jennifer Niven (

Which is why viewers have been left sobbing at the impact mental health can have on someone so young.

One took to Twitter to say: "just finished watching all the bright places and i am distraught".

Another added: "I watched all the bright places expecting a happy romance with teenagers BUT NOPE IT HAD THE WORST ENDING AND NOW IM CRYING. F**K YOU NETFLIX WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DO THAT". [sic]

A third said: "I just finished All the Bright Places. I must say, the movie [has] damaged me in a good way as much as the book have damaged me when I first read it. 10 10 10 across the board!! I'm in the shower and still crying."

A fourth echoed sentiments: "Just me bawling over all the bright places".

Another simply mentioned the film name next to a picture of a broken heart.

Theodore Finch is played by Justice Smith (

While Theodore seems to help heal Violet Markey (Elle Fanning) who is struggling with survivor's guilt after the death of her sister, Theodore's issues seem to run deeper, leading to the tragic moment where Violet discovers what he's done.

It's a sad story that deals with grief, mental illness and suicide - and definitely not a light-hearted teen drama, so be prepared if you don't want a heavy watch this weekend.
