Movies in Review: “If I Stay”

If_I_Stay_poster
This movie probably won’t move most of you, and I’m sure many of you have very little interest in seeing it. I’m a fan of a good “chick flick”, and I found the trailer and theatrical poster to my liking, which intrigued my interest to see this film. I also heard it was a bit of a tear jerker, and this weekend I was in need of a good cry…

This movie was all Chloë Grace Moretz…wow. I’m not the biggest fan of hers, but I do always find respect for her performances, but her performance in this film set me on a different level with her. She was absolutely perfect as Mia Hall. It was said Dakota Fanning was also up for this role, but as much as I love Fanning, I don’t think she would have done Mia the justice. Moretz was so soft, beautiful and sweet. And don’t get me started on the music in the film. She had me thinking she was really playing that beautiful cello…nicely done. Besides Moretz, I loved the story and the other characters involved. Mia and her best friend played by Liana Liberato felt like a genuine friendship. Mia’s family will have you laughing, and falling in love with their family dynamic. Then there is the love story, which did a great job of being overkill in the story.

This movie is super sweet, moving, and may have a few of you wiping some tears away. This movie was beautifully directed and had great acting performances. It will hold your attention until the credits roll, that is if you’re in to movies like these…lol. I enjoyed it…B

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.
