Synopsis

Zoey Deutch stars as an entitled brat (and founding member of her school’s elite “mean girls” clique) who is inexplicably compelled to wrap up her final moments on Earth reliving the last day of her life before getting it right. Other than an unexpected air of adroitness that occasionally kicks in to boost the narrative, there’s nothing particularly original about this bald-faced lift of Groundhog Day that’s geared for teenage girls. Still, short of tipping friends and family to that day’s winning lottery numbers, the altruistic upshot of Deutch’s endeavors come off as a pleasant shock in a genre film that at any second could have veered in the direction of fanboy horror or soporific sentiment. Deutch’s naturalistic performance grounds the various layers of the story in a manner that keeps it from becoming either boring or wildly unrealistic. With Jennifer Beals as Deutch’s mother and Elena Kampouris as the school’s sheep-haired misfit. Ry Russo-Young directs.
