You honestly don’t know what you are missing out on if you have not watched the movie Me Before You. It is pure heaven. It has everything people love in a flick. The cast is gorgeous and massively talented. Trust us; you are going to fall in love with them forever and ever. The ingenious plot is filled with twists and turns that will have you guessing, wrongly at most, at what happens next. Thea Sharrock directed the tears-inducing lovely British romance drama, but it was inspired by Jojo Moyes’ best-selling novel. Enjoy the movie review.
It is not your everyday love-drama movie. Films where the underlying theme is mostly about, boy meets girl. They fall in love. Fate, however, has other plans. Viewers, you have been warned: Be prepared to shed some tears of joy and for a bag-load of hearty chuckles as well. It is something special.
Best Movie the Whole Summer
The story features the tale of a fabulously wealthy British lad, Louisa Clark, who as a result of an accident gets confined to a wheelchair. The family of the guy owns an actual castle nestled on top of a hill complete with the enchanting gardens outside. The quadriplegic is played by none other than the gifted, Will Traynor. If you loved the Hunger games prequels, then you are familiar with the actor. Prior to the accident, Lou used to do what any other blue-blooded wealthy, handsome guy does. Fast cars, expensive wines, private planes and yes, of course, the never-ending supply of super-model blondes to keep him warm every night. Lou is, or rather was, gay, by the way. His name is Patrick, played by Matthew Lewis.
Romance, Romance, and Romance
Sticking with the epic movies and series theme, the girl in the film happens to be the much-beloved Dragon lady from the cult-like HBO series, Game of Thrones. Emilia Clarke pulls off her role magnificently. In, Me Before You, She is depicted as being a big-blue-eyed brunette hailing from a normal, rowdy, working-class British family. Emily is hired by Lou’s mom to help look after their son. Lou’s mom and the rest of the household members secretly fear that Lou is on the edge. They are convinced that he is intending on making plans to head to Switzerland, check into one of those suicide-assisted deaths’ clinics and end his ‘unbearable’ life. Emily is meant to act as a distraction to keep the son occupied and alive. Her sarcasm and her peculiar fashion taste will leave you with more questions than answers at the end of the movie.
In return for her annoying ways, Lou repays her by teaching her about the sophisticated life. He introduces her to Mozart and movies with subtitles. Sex scenes are subdued, to say the say least, but the romance is everywhere. We are actually surprised it got a PG-13 rating. It ought to be an ideal viewing film for the entire family. Just joking, though.
Without wanting to ruin the grand ending of the fantasy-of-a-movie, You Before Me movie really is, this is all we can say: Tragic ending loading. But we may be wrong in our assertions. It is up to you as the viewer to decide on whether it is a tragedy or not.
