Author Gayle Forman’s 2009 novel If I Stay is getting a film adaptation and everyone’s favorite Chloë Moretz is taking on the starring role. Moretz plays Mia Hall, a teenage cello player who must decide between moving away to attend Juilliard or staying home to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). However, a horrific accident complicates Mia’s life even further, taking her farther away from Adam than she ever could have imagined.
This first trailer for If I Stay seems a bit too sweet for my taste, and some lines read as a little contrived, but the book was beloved to the best of my understanding, so I’m sure this film will have people lining up to see it. Additionally, I am always a fan of Chloë Moretz, so I have faith in this being watchable despite how saccharine the trailer seems.
If I Stay opens August 22nd.[Source: Collider]
