#27 Before I Fall
Imagine living the same day over and over again. No, we aren’t talking about your mundane days during quarantine. We are talking about living the exact same day on loop. Can’t picture it? Well, Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) can.
In “If I Fall”, she stars as a popular high school girl. She’s got family, friends, and a boyfriend. Her life seems perfect until she and her friends get into a car accident that gets her trapped reliving the same day over and over again. Helplessly, she tries to act, dress, and speak differently every day to find out where she went wrong. Each time, she realizes her mistakes, her shortcomings, and sees her life under a new lens of clarity. With each new (same) day she lives, she tries to make amends towards the people she hurt, and we see a stronger, kinder, and more beautiful Samantha come to shape.
Too bad all these epiphanies just led up to her death when she saved a classmate from committing suicide. We were not expecting that at all.
