One day is just another charmed one in Sam’s life until it turns out to be her last. Stuck reliving her last day during one inexplicable week, Sam untangles the mystery surrounding her death—and discovers the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.
With a screenplay by Maria Maggenti and produced by Brian Robbins, Matt Kaplan, and Jon Shestack, Before I Fall stars Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Kian Lawley, Logan Miller, Cynthy Wu, Elena Kampouris, Medalion Rahimi, and Jennifer Beals.
The film offers counter-programming in a weekend that will se the tentpole Furious 8 drop into theaters from Universal. Also scheduled in limited release from Fox Searchlight that same weekend is Gifted — a film in the vein of Kramer vs. Kramer directed by Marc Webb and starring Chris Evans, Lindsay Duncan and McKenna Grace.
