It’s been some time since I last watched a movie. The closest that I’ve done was watching trailers being shared on Facebook. One such movie was If I Stay, directed by R. J. Cutler, and headed by Chloë Grace Moretz.
The trailer caught my attention because A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera’s Say Something was on it, and that it seemed to involve having an out-of-body experience, which is a movie theme I haven’t seen in a long time.
So, with my friends, I skipped work for the night (I was burned out, anyway), and opted to have a movie and dinner outing. 🙂
Based on the young adult novel written by Gayle Forman, it tells the story of Mia Hall (Moretz) who has an out-of-body experience after she, her parents, and younger brother, Teddy, get into a motor-vehicle accident while on the way to visit her grandparents. While she hovers over her hospitalized body, she learns that her mother died on the spot and that her father died while on the operating table. This prompts her to want to recover and to be strong and care for Teddy.
