Chloë Grace Moretz has been building a very impressive career over the past few years. After breaking out in cult hit Kick-Ass in 2010, Moretz has positioned herself as one of the most promising young actors of her generation. This looks set to continue with her next film, an adaptation of Gayle Forman’s 2009 Young Adult novel If I Stay.
The first trailer for the film has recently been released, and it looks like the film has the potential to succeed in the tricky pairing of romance and supernatural drama. The clever use of A Great Big World’s recent hit ‘Say Something’ ensures that this trailer hits the spot. Extra movie nerd points for anyone who recognises Josh from The Blair Witch Project in the role of Moretz’s father.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Mia Hall thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam. But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate.
