What is Cherry About?
‘Cherry’ depicts the story of the lead character Cherry. It revolves around the decisions that Cherry makes and the consequences resulting from those decisions. Cherry is shown to be a young Ohio man who has found true love in his girlfriend, Emily. The couple enjoys their days in each other’s company till Cherry decides to start a new chapter in his life. He enlists in the military but his time serving is filled with violence and bloodshed, which inevitably causes Cherry to suffer from PTSD after his term is over.
Cherry takes up opioid addiction as a method to get rid of all the voices in his head. He soon realizes he does not have sufficient financial resources to support his addiction, and he starts robbing banks. The addiction pulls him into a spiral, and his story takes even more dark turns. Tom Holland shows a new side to himself as Cherry, much different from his role as the friendly neighborhood Spiderman in the MCU.
