BEFORE I FALL (2017): The Things I Liked…

Before I Fall, the Ry Russo-Young directed drama / mystery about a high school girl (Zoe Deutch) who keeps re-living the last day of her life over and over again was an OK experience. I enjoyed some of the music in the film and Zoe Deutch is a good actress. There are also definitely some useful thinking points in there, especially for those around the age of the protagonist. However, beyond that you may find yourself wishing that the story had more of a certain something else or number of things – and then some. You know, for the whole experience to be more worthwhile. Perhaps I’m just too grown up.

Watch Before I Fall if you’re curious enough. I for one plan to finally sit down and watch Groundhog Day (1993) for the first time; a similar story where a weatherman gets to live the same day over and over again.

Happy Film Loving

  1. I’d be interested in hearing how this compares to Groundhog Day once you’ve seen both. I will have to see this one first to make my own comparisons. I like these sort of films generally.

      1. I have no schedule, sadly. Usually the viewing of a film that really touches me or impresses me triggers a flood of posting but I haven’t seen anything lately that has warranted a post.
