The acting was amazing from Chloë Grace Moretz , I thought she was vary believable in her role. The movie itself was inspiring. It was one of those movies you watch, and it felt like your life has been changed in some way. Chloë has been proving herself the be one of the best, and I believe some day she will win an Oscar.
