Movie Review: If I Stay

Pop punk meets classical in the film adaption of Gayle Forman’s wildly popular young adult novel If I Stay. Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) is an extraordinary cellist from Portland, Oregon, with plans to attend Julliard. Mia’s life is flipped upside-down when a snowy drive leaves Mia and her brother Teddy (Jakob Davies) orphaned and in comas. Stuck in a state between life and death, Mia must decide if she wants to leave her best friend, Kim Schein (Liana Liberato), and rocker boyfriend, Adam Wilde (Jamie Blackley), behind or stay and face her loss.If I Stay is yet another successful movie to book adaption. Director R.J. Cutler created a seamless transition from page to screen without sacrificing crucial details. The soundtrack envelops the compelling mood of the film and carries the storyline from beginning to end.

I highly recommend If I Stay to anyone who is looking to watch something a bit different from your typical “chick flick” romance. If you’re a crier, I’d suggest bringing tissues.
