Evan Hansen is a loner and tries to take medication to cope with his social anxiety and depression. But that he "meets" on accident another loner Connor Murphy on the outside is a jerk but on the inside he is lonely and suffering the same thing.
He kills himself and Evan kind of feels a kinship to him. He waves a bunch of lies to say that he was "friends" with Connor as he is come off a broken arm and lies about how he broke that arm as you will have to see the film to find out why.
He tries to bring himself to Connor's grieving family and starts a courtship with that of their surviving child, daughter Zoey who feels mad at the attention her now late brother has gotten but gets to "know" him through Evan.
As a letter surfaces from Evan to himself but everybody thinks that it is from Connor to Evan. Yet again a lie.
As Evan starts on the other hand to fill appreciative there, he must hide those lies. Or will they come back and cost him the respect and friendship he tried so hard to overcome?
Julianne Moore, Amy Adams, Danny Pinto, offer support along with Kaitlyn Dever as his love interest.
Bet Platt is the titular character and can act and sing and dance. Charm you despite his social awkwardness in the film.
Shows over in mental health and emotional health as well. It is OK not to be OK.
