Grab the tissues for the All the Bright Places love story, the new Netflix romantic drama set in the fictional town of Bartlett, Indiana. The film brings to the small screen the awarded novel about young love and mental illness, first published in 2015 by Jennifer Niven. Bartlett is inspired by Niven's home town, Richmond, also in Indiana.

The film star model and singer Elle Fanning (Aurora in the Maleficent film series) as Violet Markey, who is grieving the lost of her older sister in a car crash. She'd like to get out of Bartlett, the small town where it all happened, but she has to wait until graduation. Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Detective Pikachu), plays Theodore Finch, the teenager who suffers from Bipolar Disorder and falls in love with Violet.

During their romance, Finch and Violet travel to several bright places in Indiana. All the Bright Places was filmed basically in Ohio and around the city of Cleveland. Also a few filming locations where shot in Indiana. Here is our spoiler-free report for the Netflix movie:

Hoosier Hill
The first place where the couple travel is the highest point in Indiana, Hoosier Hill, at 1,257 feet above sea level. There is a 'before I die I want to...' graffiti on West Side Market in Cleveland, that may have been the inspiration for the one pictured in the ruined building scene.

Bartlett High
The filmmakers never show the facade of the high school during the movie. In the book Bartlett High is inspired by Richmond (Indiana) High School. The Euclid High School and the Charles F. Brush High School in Lyndhurst, both in Ohio, are also listed in the film's credits. The Hulu series Little Fires Everywhere location is also set in Ohio. Image courtesy of Netflix
