Before I Fall (DVD)
What if you died in a car crash, and then woke up in your own bed the morning of the previous day? And what if it kept happening, over and over and over? Would you try to change things? Would you just go off the deep end? Doesn't it all just sound exhausting? Good thing it's happening to Sam, and not us! Sam and her best friends are for the most part aggressively shallow, careless, and mean. The clique leader is a walking duckface selfie with a chip on her shoulder the size of a 2 x 4. But the girls genuinely care for and support each other, and the movie is watchable and engrossing. Zoey Deutch, as Sam, turns in a very nice performance as she carries the film on her relatable shoulders.
Teenage Groundhog Day contains underage drinking, mature themes, bad words, and dying a whole bunch o' times. And be sure to check out the book by Lauren Oliver. I especially like the audiobook, narrated by Sarah Drew of Grey's Anatomy.
