About the Movie

Tessa Scott (Dakota Fanning, The Twilight Saga) knows her days are numbered, so she dives headlong through every wild, crazy act of teenage rebellion that she can dream up. Her daring to-do list leads her to being arrested and creating chaos in her family but her boldness helps her find love with Adam (Jeremy Irvine). Don't miss this intoxicating tale of light in the darkest hour, based on Jenny Downham's controversial, award-winning best-seller Before I Die.

RENT IT! you won't be sorry, it is an amazing movie! I would not spend my money buying movies, but I would definitely buy this one!


I am not sure where all of the hate for this movies comes from, or the mediocre reviews. This is a beautifully written piece of work, and the acting is quite good. Dakota fanning's English accent is also very convincing. I am glad I saw this; I laugher, I cried, really just brilliant

Very Moving

Dont look at the rating from Rotten Tomatoes - I put off watching this movie for months. When I finally did I was blown away with how moving and deep this story was about a teenager dying from leukemia. Please watch this movie - its a must.
