Natalie has a five year plan for her life, but on her graduation night she does a pregnancy test, where the movie takes us in both directions if she is or isn’t pregnant, following her dreams to LA or being a single mother. Showing her five years and what her life would be like in either situation.

I love, adore and am obsessed with this movie. It was gorgeously made, so creative and performed stunningly. Everything felt so natural and real and it was raw and realistic. It took a hard look at what life could be like and shows you in a flicker of one test the differences your life could be.

The whole concept was creative with both worlds being shown side by side, with her struggles being a mom and trying to go after her dreams, slowly falling in love and struggling to do her career she wanted so badly. Then to see her dreams coming true, being in love and her art career, only it isn’t so easy but she still find herself. Everything about how it was created was so unique and creative. I really loved seeing everything coincide so you’d see both scenarios playing out right next to each other. It was incredible and I loved it.

Lili Reinhart is the lead playing Natalie and now I love her, she was a sensational actress and is so stunning (She looks like the late Brittany Murphy). I loved the intricate way she portrayed this character, she had to show two very different sides of this character with both worlds unfolding and she was incredible. She made it so that you could identify both lives, you could see the different emotions she was going through. I seriously loved watching her and seeing both the lives of this character, she was so incredible.

I’ve never seen a movie do it this way where we see everything side by side and I adored it so much. I was so roped into this world, this double story, this woman and her life. I didn’t take my eyes off the screen once, it captivated me so much. It was just gorgeous and beautiful, so realistic and made you feel with her on the journey of how her life could be. I actually think this is now on my favourite movies list it was so wonderous and I loved it. I want to watch it again and again.
