Live for Love.
Based on Gayle Forman's novel of the same name. "If I Stay" is the story of the gifted classical musician Mia and her boyfriend, Adam, an up and coming indie-rock star. Torn between two paths in life, her art or her relationship, Mia is forced to make an even starker choice between life and death when she is caught in a fatal car accident with her family one snowy morning in Oregon.

Good writing overall, giving the story a genuine feeling but the abrupt end ruins the whole buildup and ultimately the movie (for me).
But then again, you could argue that the movie is about all the relationships, not about one love, one couple. However, that makes me question the amount of flashbacks this movie had to tell its story. It would have been better to have some of those as a natural progression but then we wouldn't have had the drama of losing our heroine and no emotional pressure to follow the movie along... As I said, overall the writing was good but it still has some issues and rough edges all around in terms of details.
