In The Kissing Booth 3, Elle Evans worries about disappointing several men in her life. The franchise protagonist feels hopeful about joining boyfriend Noah at Harvard, but that means she’d deeply upset her best friend, Lee, who will be attending the University of California, Berkeley. Elle also clashes with her father, all the while trying to process her feelings for Marco Valentin Peña, a former dance partner.
