Lili left social media for mental health reasons

Viewers have been loving the film, with one writing: "#LookBothWays is a cosy rom-com powered on the charm of not one, but two Lili Reinharts. It's mostly set in a fantasy world where both motherhood and breaking into animation in LA are difficult, but not TOO hard. But hey, if you're looking for a sweet flick with a charming cast?" Another fan tweeted: "I am in tears I’m so proud of you Lili, this movie was so incredible and reassuring that no matter what happens you are going to be okay. I love everything about it and the cast and crew did an amazing job."

The new film is now out on Netflix

So what is Look Both Ways about? The synopsis reads: "On the eve of her college graduation, Natalie’s [Lili Reinhart] life diverges into parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and remains in her hometown, and another in which she does not and moves to Los Angeles.

"In both journeys, Natalie experiences life-changing love, pursues her dream career as an artist, and rediscovers herself." Sounds great right?!
