Storyline

It's been a year since her older sister's murder, and Echo is still far from being completely all right. Echo has been trying her hardest to be the strong one, while her mother takes too many antidepressants and her father works too much. Now, at the start of her freshman year of high school, Echo receives an unlikely gift from Zoe's old boyfriend: her diary. Echo is hesitant to read it but can't put it down after she gets caught up in Zoe's secret life.

frustration and dread
21 July 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Echo (Laura Marano) is still talking to her sister Zoë (Vanessa Marano) despite her murder a year earlier. Zoë borrowed her boyfriend Marc's car one day and drove off. It's the first day of school and it's awkward for everyone. Her parents are lost. The family goes to therapist Dr. Gallagher (Ken Jeong). When Echo notices Zoë's diary in Marc's car, she smashes the window and steals it. Despite a confession and a conviction, she still has her suspicions. Zoë's hard-partying drunken friend Carly (Giorgia Whigham) lets slip a secret.

This movie fills me with dread and not good dread. It becomes hard to watch at times. Echo intends on the most dangerous course of action. It is unreasonably dangerous. It's hard to root for the lead character when that character is reckless beyond reason. Also, it has a bit too much of Zoë. The problem is that it isn't really a mystery to be solved. Essentially, she is told of her sister's story by the diary and by Carly in expositions. The scheme to get Jason is not well thought out. It's not even a plan as much as a couple of suggestions. The other issue with Zoë is that she's dead. Watching her story in detail is simply waiting for the inevitable. Some of her scenes are unnecessary. Echo frustrates me and fills me with dread.
