Can you imagine dying one night and waking up the next morning thinking it was a dream, but then reliving the whole thing the next day? Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch), a young adult, learned a valuable lesson through this experience in the movie, Before I Fall.
Samantha Kingston, a senior in High School, has everything anybody could want; being popular, having friends, and a boyfriend. On “Cupid Day” she goes to a party and on the way home Sam and her friends, Lindsay(Halston Sage), Elody(Medalion Rahimi), and Ally(Cynthy Wu), get into a car accident. The next morning she wakes up thinking it was a dream, but then relives the whole day exactly as it was in her dream. Every day she tries something different to change their fate, but wakes up to the same day the next morning.
In the climax of the movie Sam goes through emotional pain. Zoey Deutch’s amazing portrayal of the pain made the audience feel sympathy for her and hope for the best. Along with Zoey, Halston Sage (Lindsay) plays every movies’ “mean girl” and does an exceptional job with it.
With so many themes and morals in the story, I believe the main theme is, “You can do everything to change your fate, but in the end fate wins.”
Altogether the movie was entertaining and has a good moral, but does get cheesy at times. But overall, I recommend you watch Before I Fall while it is still in theaters.
