Me Before You Movie Review

Why would I suggest you out aside anything you think has to do with love? Basically, you will need to wipe yourself clean of what you would do in any situation. Well, this movie is why. The story it’s self is beautiful and truly asks you what you would do I that situation if you just loved someone. Truly loved someone.

Bring Tissues

As we walked in to screen the film we were given. Box of Kleenex tissues. I purposely didn’t wear any makeup for this movie since I know how I am with these love stories. Trust me when I say you need tissues for this movie. Me Before You is a movie based on a book.

From what I heard from the other movie goers who have read that book inside and out. They stated that it was. A beautiful interpretation of the book and that it was true to the book. I honestly have never read the book but if I did I’m sure I would have cried Reading it too.

About Me Before You

Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it. Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go…Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet.  Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge. 

Taking a job at the local “castle,” she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair-bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye.  No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up. 

That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living.  Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives—and hearts—changing in ways neither one could have imagined.

Why I loved the film Me Before You

I was talking to my bestie when we left the movie, pertaining to the ending which I promise I won’t spoil for those of you who haven’t read the book. But our conversation circled around the selfishness of one of the characters be how the other want considerate.

After a lengthy debate which is why above I stated you must leave all you believe aside when watching this, we came to an agreement sometimes what one may seem selfish is really an act of true love and if the other person loves them enough, they will love them through that person’s decision.
