Life In A Year Review


Alivia Gutierrez, Contributor

Life In A Year was an overall terrific movie about how everything came out to be. There were such amazing and heartwarming scenes that made you wish to be in the movie itself. There were also some bad qualities in the movie where there were some awkward scenes that made it seem like they didn’t know what they were really doing. But overall, the production was well thought out and truly amazing. 

When 17-year-old Daryn learns his girlfriend is dying, he sets out to give her a lifetime’s worth of experiences in the year she has left to live. When meeting his girlfriend, he makes all of her dreams come true within the year she has to live. 

In the movie there were great aspects to the movie. The actors, Jayden Smith and Cara Delevingne, who played Daryn and Isabell, were such amazing actors, with how they made their emotions seem so real. The production company, Columbia Pictures Overbrook Entertainment, which was produced by Caleeb Pinkett and Claraence Hammond, did such good work with the movie.  With some scenes, there were awkward moments which didn’t seem to correlate with the movie, but there were also some touching moments that have made me want to watch it at least ten more times. 

In all, the movie sound effects and editing was really good and well thought out. There could be some fix up with the editing, but overall really good. As a whole of the movie, its truly amazing and I would recommend 16 and up.
