Before I Fall

Zoey Deutch (daughter to actress Lea Thompson and director Howard Deutch) stars in this teenage version of Groundhog Day. Deutch plays Sam, a spoiled-rich high school mean girl who dies in a car crash and then finds herself reliving the previous 24 hours. As you can probably imagine, she's got to change her behavior, learn how to be kind, not care about popularity and dump her bad boyfriend in favor of the nice kid in order to escape. (Duh.) There are some solid insights into modern teen behavior and the moral lesson is certainly valuable, but the story is strictly recycled. It's based, of course, on a YA novel of the same name. 99 minutes PG-13.
