Zoey Deutch in Before I Fall

Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) is having a terrible day. A popular high school girl, she has it all: friends, a boyfriend, plenty of money and no cares at all. But then she dies in a horrible car accident. It's all over in an instant -- until she wakes up the next morning in a panic when it is the very same day. It's like Groundhog Day meets Mean Girls, and is based on the bestselling YA novel by Lauren Oliver.

Samantha begins to realize that she's not actually a very nice person. She and her friends are horrible to the unpopular kids and have no concern whatsoever for how their actions affect others. Now Samantha is determined to make things right and avoid her terrible fate.

Zoey Deutch is a fantastic actress: she was excellent in the little seen and very underappreciated Vampire Academy, another feature film adaptation of a bestselling teen book. In this film Zoey co-stars with Halston Sage, who plays Lindsay, the meanest of the mean girls, as well as Jennifer Beals, Logan Biller, Elena Kampouris and Diego Boneta. The film was directed by Ry Russo-Young and hits theaters March 17, 2017. Take a look:
