Apple has shared an inside look at the main relationship between Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo in Cherry, the new Russo Brothers film that is in theaters now and will premiere on Apple TV+ on March 12.

The inside look features commentary from Holland and Bravo who reveal that the love shared between their two characters in the film is not one to hold up as any kind of healthy relationship.

Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo reflect on their characters' love story in Cherry. From careless college students to co-dependent drug addicts, this is not a romance worth romanticizing. Hear how the actors portrayed the delicate balance between young lovers and toxic abusers.

As the two actors explain, the relationship held between Cherry and Emily is incredibly co-dependent and wreaks havoc on both of their lives.

Holland: You meet Cherry, and he's a kid who's having a hard time. He just doesn't really know why he feels the way he feels. And he meets this wonderful lady called Emily.Bravo: Cherry is the first time Emily has ever experienced love. She's finally escaped an abusive home. It forces her to face her demons. In a way that causes her to self-destruct.

The film tells the story of Cherry who, after going through a breakup with his girlfriend, signs up for the military and returns from the Iraq War with PTSD.

When Cherry returns home a war hero, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, surrounding himself with a menagerie of depraved misfits. Draining his finances, Cherry turns to bank robbing to fund his addiction, shattering his relationship with Emily along the way. Brought to the screen in bold, gritty fashion by visionary directors Anthony and Joe Russo, "Cherry" is a darkly humorous, unflinching coming-of-age story of a man on a universal quest for purpose and human connection.

Cherry will premiere on Apple TV+ on March 12.
