Wanted: barefoot bibliophile willing to punt Daniel Defoe to rich, modern-day Robinson Crusoes at a luxury desert island resort.

Philip Blackwell, scion of the bookseller family, needs a Man Friday for possibly the world’s most remote bookshop, based in the luxury eco resort of Soneva Fushi in the Maldives.

Someone please take this job and send us pics so we can live vicariously through them.

Sunday on Twitter, Jenny Han — author of the novel on which the flick is based — shared some behind-the-scenes snaps and clips from the movie’s making. It wasn’t outtakes and scenes from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before that she posted, though. Instead, Han shared footage of cast members recreating classic scenes from ’80s and ’90s movies, including The Breakfast Club, Say Anything, and 10 Things I Hate About You.

I love this movie, and this cast, SO MUCH.
