Blu-ray Review: Before I Fall

May 30, 2017

By John Corrado

Samantha (Zoey Deutch) is a popular small town high schooler who goes to a “Cupid’s Day” party with her trio of mean girl friends, only to have their car flip over on the way home after an unfortunate series of events causes them to leave.  The next morning, Samantha wakes up in bed, and the whole day starts all over again, dooming her to keep repeating it until she gets it right.

The easiest and most obvious way to describe Before I Fall would be as a sort of YA Groundhog Day, but this richly textured and wholly engaging high school time loop drama is good enough to work on its own terms, and functions as a standout showcase for Zoey Deutch.  It’s the sort of film that deserves to find more of a following on Blu-ray, and you can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray includes no bonus features, but comes with a digital copy of the film.

Before I Fall is an Elevation Pictures release.  It’s 98 minutes and rated PG.
