Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) is stuck in a never-ending day and find a way for the cycle to end in something other than death.

In the movie “Before I Fall,” main character Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) lives the quintessential teenage life- perfect friends, an ideal boyfriend and a clear future. 

That is, until the life-changing night that she keeps on reliving-literally.

Samantha keeps waking up to the same day and falls into a seemingly meaningless cycle of repetition. Realizing that each day will begin anew, Samantha takes on the day with an attitude ranging from a careless manner to a kindness she hasn’t expressed to her family and others in years.

Samantha soon learns that in order to break the cycle, she may need to make significant changes in her relationship to her loved ones and those she never gave a second thought about.

The audience follows Sam in her emotional journey and is forced to step back and rethink the relationships in their life.

Zoey Deutchcan be seen in “Vampire Academy” as Samantha Kingston, Youtube star Kian Lawley as Sam’s boyfriend and Halston Sage from “Paper Towns” as her best friend. The film is rated PG-13 due to it mature and heavy content.

Based on Lauren Oliver’s best-selling young adult novel, “Before I Fall” tells the story of leaving behind a legacy, taking second chances and the never-ending possibility of redemption.

“Before I Fall” is definitely worth the cost of admission and much more for the masterful acting and poignant storyline portrayed in the film.

“Maybe for you, there’s a tomorrow. But for some of us, there’s only today.”
