"The Life Before Her Eyes" uses a staggered arrangement of two main lines. The first main line is composed of high school girl Diana's experience on the day of the school shooting and other life fragments. These "real" parts are based on the more "virtual" frameworks of the current problems on American campuses. The second thread focuses on what happened between Diana and her husband and children fifteen years after the shooting. Although the two stories seem to have a successive relationship in time, the director also cleverly used a puzzle-like method to convince the audience that there is an inevitable connection between the two stories most of the time. But in fact the latter story only exists in the personal imagination of the heroine Diana   .
The film does a good job of connecting personal experiences and the larger environment tightly together. Issues such as the proliferation of guns on campus, uncontrolled sex, and abortion are all shown and discussed in the film, but these topics never dilute the main story line that the film is about to tell as a whole   .
"The Life Before Her Eyes" opens with a detailed and horrific Columbine school shooting. Subtly transitioning from a teenage girl to an elegant woman and mother-daughter tensions, the often-remembered episode about "a young girl, a dying woman, and America's growing up puzzles" reflects a lot of humanity   .
The film's description of violence and grief is too contrived and dramatic, and fails to convey the power of words in the original novel to the big screen intact. Although the plot arrangement is somewhat disorganized, it cannot hide the thoughtful dramatic conflict that this film offers. The film is a work that can easily irritate you mentally, even if it is a bit disappointing in terms of pace, it is still a good film with talent. You might feel sorry for Uma Thurman, because her performance is not only exaggerated and overly pretentious, but Evan Moore deserves a lot of applause   .

    Movies these days like the dead to play as the living. Now the dying people have developed brains

    Although the ending is not what I expected, but I don't think it is that exciting. Watched for wood.

The Life Before Her Eyes quotes

  • Young Diana: Maureen, what did I do to deserve a friend like you?

    Maureen: Um, something in a past life?

  • Paul McFee: William James, that most American philosopher, once advised: "begin to be now what you will be hereafter". One might ask how? Our deepest guide in our beginning to be, is our imagination. Our ability to project, and mold our future selves from the myriad possibilities before us. And to imagine takes courage and effort. But it gives us hope too, hope that we can author our own destinies, hope that rightness of the decisions we make now will be borne out in the future. As much as we can be overwhelmed by the world, we can also draw hope from it. From beauty, from promise, from the simple fact that we have the talent to imagine our future selves from all the possible lives that pass before our eyes. We must imagine our lives well. We must engage our conscience. Conscience is the voice of God in the nature and heart of man.
