If I Stay, Chloe Moretz
Based on Gayle Forman’s bestselling teen novel, “If I Stay” should certainly appeal to its target demo. It alternately seems engineered for tears, giggles and swoons, and it shouldn’t have an issue with making adolescent girls, go through all of those in turn. Chloë Grace Moretz’s Mia Hall is an identifiable, admirable heroine, who isn’t quite the outsider she was in “Carrie,” but she still carries that teenage worry of being set apart from her peers. Meanwhile, her love interest Adam (Jamie Blackley, “Snow White and the Huntsmen”) is the perfect amount of sweet and smoldering for the audience. If BOP magazine were still around, Blackley would be its cover boy, adorning the lockers of high schoolers everywhere.

Magic In The Moonlight
What do we know about Woody Allen’s “Magic In The Moonlight” so far? Well, besides a new poster that had the whole Internet up in arms because of its poor Photoshop—despite the fact that poor Photoshopped movie posters are a dime a dozen—quite a bit. Though since I’ve not watched the trailer—saving myself for the movie—I feel personally a little bit more in the dark in terms of flavor.

Harkening back to Italian neo-realism, the romance of Naples is alive in "And While We Were Here," the latest film from writer-director Kat Coiro. Considerably more watchable than her pratfall-driven debut "L!fe Happens," the picture is significantly more sober-minded, concerning the marriage of pretty blonde Jane (Kate Bosworth) and taciturn, mature Leonard (Iddo Goldberg). They arrive in the city and, almost as if by protocol, consume each other in bed. As she retreats to the lavatory, she gazes in the mirror and wraps her arm around her stomach mournfully. It's not hard to see that, while young, Jane has lost something.
