ALL it takes is a moment to change your life forever – at least that is the message in tear-jerking drama If I Stay.
A talented young teen, Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz), is gifted at playing the cello and has a world of opportunity ahead of her.
When her family is involved in a horrific car crash, she is left in a coma fighting for her life.
Although her body lies motionless, her mind is still very much alive and this emotive film tracks her conscience as she decides whether to wake up and face a life of coping with her injuries or to give up.
Most film fans will be used to seeing Moretz in a younger role in films such as Kick-Ass or Hugo, but in this cinematic offering she transforms into a mature young woman and handles some difficult themes.
The film, which is based on Gayle Forman’s bestselling teen book of the same name, is due to be released tomorrow.
