Plot: February 12 is just another day in Sam's charmed life, until it turns out to be her last. Stuck reliving her last day over one inexplicable week, Sam untangles the mystery around her death and discovers everything she's losing. Runtime: 98 mins Release Date: 03 Mar 2017
I loved this movie, sure the book was better, but ... wow. I truly felt like I connected with the teen, Sam, in many ways. I love how this movie held many different morals and themes that anyone would connect to. The ending was rather sad, however, satisfying. I completely recommend watching this movie and to read the book.
Amazing (by yasminatrash)
I usually feel like the movies based on books don't do the books fair, but this film was an exception. The cast is so talented and the story was told beautifully. The pain that Sam was going through is presented in an amazing way that makes you sympathise with her. The end is heart breaking but that's what makes the movie so good, right?
Haunting (by mrocco-1)
This is one of those 'God I miss the forums' moments. I wish I had someone to talk to about this movie, even while putting up with the trolls lol. THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERSThis is a variation of the Groundhog Day/Butterfly effect that has been done Ad nauseum in books and movies where our main character relives the same day. As expected, the point of the story is that their actions in that day evolve to the point where the lessons are learned and the day finally ends. This movie is no different. I'm haunted by this movie because of a particular lesson learned, and it's <more>
not the main one that finally ends her loop. Sam is our main character caught in the time loop. She is part of a foursome of girls that are the popular girls and sometimes the mean girls. Their leader is Lindsay Linds who is the meanest of all with some deep rooted insecurities. As Sam relives her day she discovers more insight into her own life and the flaws of her and her friends. The two girls that receive the bulk of the mean girl routine become known to her and she realizes she is just following Lindsay like a puppet, not even knowing why they are mean to these girls. On one of her days journey, she lashes out at her friends in anger and disgust, particularly her bestie Lindsay. She sees Lindsay for who she is and she doesn't like it. For most people that would be the end of that. We all have those friends that we turn on when we realize their flaws and decide to remove them from our lives. Let's face it, love is usually conditional. The part of the movie that REALLY got me and I can't stop thinking about is the full circle point where she recognizes the motivation behind Lindsay's 'meanness' and shows her total compassion and love. She embraces this meanest girl of all and instead of rejection and hate she provides her with complete recognition and acceptance. This may seem like no big deal to most, but to me it stuck out like a sore thumb. Usually in movies and books the character like Lindsay end with that character getting his or her comeuppance. Instead this movie preaches love and understanding of all people.This is the part I can't stop thinking about. This is the kind of love and compassion that I would venture to say most of us want to think we posses, but really don't when it's too close to home. I found that very inspiring and it has me thinking of various people I've rejected in my life based on my judgment of them without any compassion. Any movie that makes me think as much as this one has deserves a 10.
This film is much better than advertised, IMHO (by orlando-somera)
Groundhog Day was played for laughs thereby selling the potential of this concept short. And though this more youthful and feminine take doesn't quite wring everything out of it, it goes much farther than the original, and that's really good to see.Most critics point out the promise of the lead, Zoey Deutch, who is good, but for me the real star is the story and its execution. There are group scenes in this film that are incredibly natural, as if these actors were actually friends. The gabby girlfriend thing is a bit much for guys, but it moves on pretty quickly. And there's also <more>
the performance of the main baddie, Halston Sage, who manages to conjure up every snooty clique queen you've ever known.All in all, an entertaining time at the movies showing a lot of promise for its young director, Ry Russo-Young.
Should become a cult classic, kind of like 'HEATHERS' or other dark teen drama/thrillers like that. (by Hellmant)
'BEFORE I FALL': Four and a Half Stars Out of Five A mystery-drama based on the popular 2010 YA novel, of the same name, by Lauren Oliver. It tells the story of a high school senior that discovers she's reliving the last day of her life, over and over again, apparently until she can figure out what she needs to do to make things right in her life, and those of the people around her . The film stars Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Madalion Rahimi, Cynthy Wu, Logan Miller and Jennifer Beals. It was directed by Ry Russo-Young and it was scripted by Maria Maggenti. The film has received <more>
mostly positive reviews, from critics and fans alike, but it's underperformed at the Box Office so far . I hope it becomes a cult classic.Samantha Kingston Deutch is a popular high school senior, that's planning to lose her virginity on the night of Cupid's Day. She dies in a car accident instead, with her other popular friends. The next day she wakes up to find out she's reliving the same exact day, and then the next several days she keeps waking up to find out the same exact thing. Samantha slowly realizes that she needs to set things right, in her life and with those of her friends, in order to hopefully change things finally.The movie is surprisingly insightful; in dealing with high school life, and the dynamics of being popular verses being an unloved outcast. It's something the very flawed main character has to learn, and better herself by learning, in order to finally set things right for her and everyone around her . That's why I love this movie; it has a very powerful, and quite moving, message about how we treat others and how we should treat them . It's also really well acted, directed and written. I can definitely see it becoming a cult classic, if enough people see it. Kind of like 'HEATHERS', or other dark teen drama/thrillers like that. It's that good!

When I read that this film was a cross between Groundhog Day and Mean Girls I nearly passed it up. Thank goodness I didn't, as it is a truly exceptional film, sure teen films have been done to death, but for a change the film contains empathy and soul, I know it's a cliche but Samantha's journey of discovery is well realised.The film is well paced, very well acted, and very engaging, I found it very easy to follow the story, and understand the character's motives.So often this type of movie features great ideas, but the execution is too blunt, Before I fall is subtle, engaging <more>
and excellent all round. I'm so surprised by its sheer quality. 9/10
Looking through other reviews, I see a lot of people unhappy with the ending, but I think they fail to see the whole point of Sam's repeated day. It's not about her having to solve something that would lead to a different outcome, because she was supposed to die anyway. It's really about her getting a chance to leave the people she loves with good memories and tie up some loose ends before she dies. If you think of it, it's really a gift, not a punishment. She gets to tell her family and friends she loves them, implant beautiful last memories, save a girl's life not by <more>
offering her own instead, because she was supposed to die either way and leave the boy who always loved her with the knowledge that she loved him back. How many people get that chance? If she hadn't gotten her repeat day, she would have left lousy or meaningless memories of herself to everyone. In the end, she understands this and no longer tries to find a way to get out of the loop. So I get that a movie like this can leave you angry about the ending, but actually it couldn't have ended better. Oh, and I don't think it's a movie only meant for teenagers except for the soundtrack, of course .
The life of a very popular high-school teenage girl is about to take a dramatic turn when she sees herself repeating the same day. Realizing this fact, she tries different approaches, trying to find out the cause and what needs to be done in order to stop this loop. Throughout the attempts, she slowly starts to acknowledge how people around her are and how she should behave in order to make everyone happy, or mad.It's a movie which is based on the fact that the girl repeats the same fatidic day and insists on it from various perspectives. It's interesting and quite thrilling, keeping <more>
you curios about what will happen in the end. It's a bit slow though and even awkward at times, while the whole repeating day could have been better thought, as well as the main character's actions.Still, it's a pretty good achievement for this type of movie which had a good idea and managed to create a good movie out of it, even without a fabulous budget.
I will come out straight and say that I am not into teeny girlie movies at all, but I hasten to add that I am nowhere near an alpha male! Having cleared that up I will now say what I thought of the movie overall. The story-line, the script and the acting was pretty much solid, but my sole grievance is that the ending was a bit of a let down. If the movie was supposed to be a sort of Groundhog Day type story, then I have to say it was a major let down. Although watching the movie, around half way through one pretty much gets where it is going to, but the ending was just terrible. One thing I <more>
hate is being left hanging after watching an average 90 minute movie. I would have liked to have seen the aftermath. In other words when Sam finally ends up with the real fate that is supposed to befall her, I would have liked to have seen the aftermath of that, i.e. more about Lindsay and Juliet. What became of them? Did Lindsay turn over a leaf and change for the better? Did she reconcile with her longtime estranged childhood friend Juliet? So yeah, although I loved the movie and I have seen it four times, but these things bother me about it, and I wish there had been an alternative ending, I will stop short of saying "a better ending".
