Before I Fall Movie | Advance Movie Screening

2:33 PM


I was able to attend a screening of Before I Fall thanks to HarperCollins and Indigo on March 1st, 2017. I had a great time. I went to the screening with my boyfriend and we decided to find something quick to eat before the movie would start, which was an hour but once we got to the building the was there was a line! I have no idea why but the thought of a line hadn't crossed my mind. There were no assigned seating so, obviously, people would get to the theatre early for the chance of getting better seats. Instead of getting a quick bite, we stood in line to get our tickets. There weren't that many people but still, I had no idea how big the theatre would be and insisted we stand in line instead of eating. We were able to get good seats and we ate popcorn, chocolate and drank delicious iced tea (mostly before the movie even started! We're both very impatient). The best part was watching the movie with my boyfriend (I'm not trying to be sappy, I swear). We always have great laughs and we both love making jokes about the movie, characters, etc. during the movie, which we did. Sorry for anyone sitting beside us.

I didn't know what to expect from the movie. I didn't read the book and up until the movie started I wanted to read the book but, in a way, I'm glad I didn't because I didn't know what would happen or the ending. However, I'm a good guesser and usually predict outcomes in books and movies so going into Before I Fall I was able to be in the dark about everything and I enjoyed the movie. My boyfriend usually isn't a fan of the movie adaptations I drag bring him to watch but he quite enjoyed this one. Mostly because it didn't focus on romance and wasn't all about her high school experience. Instead it only focused on what was happening in that one day and reflecting on her and her friends actions throughout high school.

I've heard other people that went to the screening thought the movie was predictable and I'm assuming some have read the book and I just can't understand that. Reading the book and watching the movie adaptation and saying it's predictable doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure those people have their reasons.

I enjoyed the movie for what it is. I enjoyed the story, the characters and the (important) messages. To be honest, I also enjoyed all the drama. I feel if it weren't for the drama and bullying the movie would have been a complete bore. Without it the movie would have only been repetition and boring mundane life issues. Having the story focus on the "mean girls" made it interesting.
