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 and over, Sam untangles the mystery around her death and discovers everything she's losing.
Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
Based on David Levithan's acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Every Day tells the story of Rhiannon (Angourie Rice), a 16-year old girl who falls in love with a mysterious soul named "A" who inhabits a different body every day. Feeling an unmatched connection, Rhiannon and A work each day to find each other, not knowing what or who the next day will bring. The more the two fall in love, the more the realities of loving someone who is a different person every 24 hours takes a toll, leaving Rhiannon and "A" to face the hardest decision either has ever had to make.Written by
Although the film is intended to be set in and around the Washington D.C. area, many of the scenes were clearly filmed in Canada. e.g.: the scene with Rhiannon (Angourie Rice) and Alexander (Owen Teague) making soap bubbles takes place on a Canadian football field. (as evidenced by the two 50-yard line markers) See more »
The UK version is cut by 4s to remove a suicide technique (cut marks shown on a girl's arm) and secure a 12A certificate instead of a 18.
Surprisingly, the Irish release is uncut at the same rating, despite the fact that Britain and Ireland form the same distribution region (so British censorship usually gets carried over). See more »
So this is a very high end concept, a good idea and it might also make a great science fiction movie. Or at least a way better drama than the one we get served here. The psychological element goes a bit awry and gets replaced by romance or rather a romantic idea. Therefor the movie also get into the traps of many cliches that riddle romantic movies.
So while the movie has strong foundations, the building on top of it is still quite shaky at best (if you allow me this analogy). If you are young and do not care too much about going deep into subjects, you probably will like this. And I don't mean that in a bad way at all, we're talking movies here and entertainment - and above all taste in things! So take that into consideration and watch if you want a light hearted romantic movie with quite some twist to it
