If I Stay — in theatres now — is about 17-year-old musician Mia (Chloe Grace Moretz) who lies in a coma after a fatal car crash and must decide whether to stay or leave her life. Through flashbacks we see her primary relationships with her mother (Mireille Enos), friends (Liana Liberato) and boyfriend Adam (Jamie Blackley). Will she decide to live for love? Author Gayle Forman executive produced the adaption which filmed in and around Vancouver last autumn, including The Peak at Grouse Mountain.

Thursday night’s late night screenings pulled in US$1.1 million in North America and the tearjerker topped the Friday night box office at US$6.8 million. If I Stay’s three-day weekend total is expected to be around US$16.5 million, according to Deadline: Hollywood. While not quite the breakout phenomenon of The Fault in Our Stars yet, the movie If I Stay does its best-selling novel proud and Chloe Grace Moretz is Mia.
