If I Stay (2014)
That sort of story, the dying girl story, does not really characterize the movie, which is a very sweet love story between a classical cellist and the lead man in a rising rock band. He writes beautiful ballads and she plays Beethoven beautifully. The casting of these two is brilliant--they are believably smitten with each other and are very likable. So it is easy to dismiss the histrionics if you are not so into that and enjoy the movie. I am not one for weeping in movies (which doesn't mean I don't on occasion do so), but this one could lead to the shedding or tears if you are so inclined.
