Do red, white and blue have a happy ending?
Much like the book that inspired the movie, Prime Video Red, white and royal blue Does it really have a happy ending! That’s right, despite all that life making its way in the movie, Alex and Henry end up together at the end of the movie and get their happy ending!
Throughout the film, Alex and Henry navigate their complex relationship, dealing with personal and political challenges, as well as the scrutiny of the audience. Despite facing obstacles and doubts, their love runs deep and they eventually succeed in overcoming the obstacles standing in their way.
After navigating a political scandal that nearly tore them apart when they were revealed to the public after their personal emails were leaked, the couple prove they really are in it forever and are making it stronger on the other side. In the end, societal expectations, political pressures, and personal doubts lose out as Alex and Henry’s love ultimately triumphs over all obstacles thrown their way through the film.
During the final act of the movie, Alex’s mom wins her re-election campaign thanks to all the work Alex did in their home state of Texas during the election. After winning, Alex takes Henry back to his childhood home in Texas and the pair exchange “we won” messages with each other, a message that serves a double meaning. One that could be explained by Alex’s mom winning the election, but more importantly they win happily ever after now that they’re out and can publicly embrace their love.
It’s an ending that was perfect for the movie, and certainly leaves the door open should Amazon look to make a sequel!
