Tuesday Movie: If I Stay

Last night, I wanted nothing more than to sit down in the old LaZ Boy chair and watch a movie. I haven't been able to do that for awhile due to school, work, writing, kids, dog, husband, and other stuff that might bore you to tears. So anyway, as I was perusing the Netflix selections, I remembered a post I saw on Rosemary Clement's Facebook wall about the movie If I Stay. She really enjoyed the story and was brought to tears on several occasions, so I figured I'd check it out. It's about death, after all, so by watching it, I can kill two birds with one stone.

So, long story short, I watched it with my husband. It's hard to talk about this movie without giving away major spoilers, so I will just say that I enjoyed it. As the credits rolled, it made me think of the choice I would make if I were in Mia's shoes. All I will say is that I'd probably go for a non-Hollywood ending, but that's just me and I'm middle-aged. I might have a different answer if I were 18. If you decide to check it out, have a box of Kleenex handy and maybe a nice person to share the popcorn with.

Have you seen it? Which scene was harder for you?  The grandpa or the boyfriend?


  1. It is oneof Alisi's favirite movies and she says the grandpa

    1. Me too. I was blubbering during that scene.

  2. I haven't seen it, but you've piqued my curiosity. I'm funny about spoilers - in that they don't bother me. Weird, eh!
    I don't have Netflix (yet, I'm so in the dark ages) but I have a rental store (the last in the city I'm sure) and I'll check it out there.

    Okay… I couldn't resist - I just watched the trailer. OMG. Suffice it to say now I want to know how it ends.

    Thanks for sharing this movie. And, I'm glad you had someone nice to share the popcorn with.

    Sending smiles your way, Jenny :) :)
