Mia Hall (ChloŽ Grace Moretz) has a wonderful family, in love with Adam (Jamie Blackley) who plays in a band, and she is a candidate for Julliard. The next thing you know, she is in a coma and we all have Puff moments as she examines her life and can see what is happening in the hospital as a soul or spirit. Mia must make the mental decision to recover or move on and follow the light. With much of her life destroyed, she asks the question of what will she have "If I Stay."
The film is filled with all the joyous melancholy of a teen girl's life (hint: target audience). For people who couldn't cry enough over "The Fault In Our Stars" this film is here to help wrangle that last bit of moisture from your tear duct. Mom (Mireille Enos) explains life to Mia while doing dishes and inspired the title for my review.
Actors gave a good performance for a script that was a bit formulaic. Newcomer Ali Milner did an excellent job as Liz, the friend.
