Movie Review: Me Before You #LiveBoldly

IMG_4483

Directed By: Thea Sharrock

Written By: Jojo Moyes

Starring: Sam Claflin, Emilia Clarke, Vanessa Kirby, Matthew Lewis, Jenna Coleman, Janet McTeer, Charles Dance, Stephen Peacocke, Ben Lloyd-Hughes

SYNOPSIS: A wealthy London man’s life is turned upside down when he is paralyzed in a car accident. When a young woman from a small town is hired to be his caregiver, the two form an unlikely bond.

 

Anyone who has seen the trailer for ‘Me Before You’ knows they’ll need tissues when they actually see the movie.  If you think you’re the exception…think again!  Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) shine in this beautifully tragic love story from beginning to end.  Emilia’s character, Lou, is a quirky, chatty, happy-go-lucky young woman who is searching for a job to help support her family.  Sam’s character, Will, is quite the opposite.  He’s a wealthy, adventurous young businessman who becomes quadriplegic after a tragic accident.  With the help of Nathan, Will’s nurse, and Will’s parents, Lou tries to make Will feel alive again.  The story is beautiful and has so much potential, but I wish there was a bit more.  It starts off a bit slow (not complaining because the content was good) but at some point it just began to feel rushed as far as their relationship goes.  I’m sure the novel fills in those gaps but, in any case, the pacing of the story doesn’t ruin the heartfelt moments in the latter part of the movie.  It also doesn’t discredit the wonderful acting, writing and directing involved with this film.  Claflin and Clarke have great chemistry together!  The pacing issue, in my opinion, happens sometimes when they make films based on novels.  It’s impossible to fit everything in.  Either way,  I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good love story!
