This is an extraordinary movie about a girl named Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) who gets stuck in the same day over and over. She learns to live life to the fullest. I like this movie because it gives a little peak into the life of a teenager. I also think the actors are especially amazing. They say the same lines over and over, just to make it seem like the day is repeating. It must have been tiring to do that.

I was particularly impressed by the work of the special effects team. I especially enjoyed the forest scene when they add smoke to make the suicide scene look scary and intense. Teens can relate to other teens who might feel as if their day is repeating and, no matter what they do, it is almost as if they're stuck in the same day. This film is really suitable for young adolescents and I strongly recommend that, before you watch this movie, you be prepared for scenes that are heart breaking.

The film's message is to live life to the fullest today because tomorrow isn't promised. This movie offers lessons about understanding others and how to work with them. There is a lot of mild profanity and very inappropriate, scary and heartbreaking scenes. For instance, when Juliet Skies (Elena Kampouris) thinks about committing suicide, she runs into the street and is hit by a car. Right as she is hit, the image of her getting knocked out by a truck never leaves your head. It's so terrifying to see this happen.

I recommend this film for ages 15 to 18 because of the mild profanity. I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars because it has a lot of good qualities such as great acting, phenomenal characters and the ability to get you very attached to the movie. This film opens in theaters nationwide on March 3, 2017 so, be sure to check it out.

What if you had only one day to change absolutely everything? Samantha Kingston has it all: the perfect friends, the perfect guy, and a seemingly perfect future. Then, everything changes. After one fateful night, Sam wakes up with no future at all. Trapped reliving the same day over and over she begins to question just how perfect her life really was. And as she begins to untangle the mystery of a life suddenly derailed, she must also unwind the secrets of the people closest to her, and discover the power of a single day to make a difference, not just in her own life, but in the lives of those around her - before she runs out of time for good.
