Trivia

During the trailer of the film and early in the film, Sam is about to have a class on Sisyphus. Those familiar with the myth will know this refers to Sisyphus, who was forced by the god to push a massive boulder up a hill endlessly for eternity. Coinciding well with Sam's story, Sam struggles with the task of the futility of being unable to change her fate until she comes to an epiphany, similar to Sisyphus. See more »

Goofs

When Lindsay picks up Sam for the first time, the exhaust on the car indicated that the engine was cold. Even if she lived close by, after only a minute the water vapor coming out of the tail pipe is not visible. On subsequent pickups, there are no vapor clouds coming from the tailpipe, indicating the engine and exhaust system was at least moderately warm. See more »

'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 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!
