‘Before I Fall’ gives a different perspective

A popular teenager, Samantha Kingston, thinks she has every thing she could ever want - she has three best friends and a boyfriend whom every girl in school wants. On Valentine's Day, one of their classmates is having a party that they attend, but something goes terribly wrong that night.

On their way back home, they get in a car crash. When she wakes up the next morning, Samantha finds that she is reliving the previous day, but now she has the opportunity to make different decisions. No matter what she does, though, the crash still happens every time. She can’t figure out how to move on. Finally, she figures out that if she works to be a better person, she will move on.

Before “Before I Fall” was a movie, it was a book written by Lauren Oliver. I have not read the book yet but plan to soon. “Before I Fall” is a good movie for all teenagers to see. It definitely opens your eyes to see how your actions are affecting others around you. Common Sense Media says, “This well-acted young-adult adaptation explores powerful themes about making second chances count and seeing beyond the superficial to what really matters.”

This movie was given a rating of 67% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I believe that is an unfair rating. I give this movie a five out of five cardinal heads.
