IF I STAY ★★ Di­rected by RJ Cut­ler. Star­ring Chloë Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Jamie Black­ley Stacy Keach

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

Moretz plays a young woman cul­tur­ally at odds with her par­ents. The twist is that, whereas they are com­mit­ted “punk rock­ers”, she is a tal­ented clas­si­cal cel­list with am­bi­tions to go to Juil­liard. Ha ha! Of course, this be­ing a bland YA adap­ta­tion, the folks are sig­nif­i­cantly duller and less imag­i­na­tive than the av­er­age Kenny G fan. Never mind – the ro­mance be­tween Moretz and Black­ley is quite touch­ing. 12A cert, 106 min
