I enjoyed Me Before You as one of those films you don’t mind watching even though you know what’s going to happen. The entire cast which includes Charles Dance and Vanessa Kirby, along with the leads, Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke performed well. No one portrayal stood out for me more than the others.
A favourite moment that I remember fondly is the gift giving scene at the birthday do. The beautiful moment Emilia’s character opens hers and all that it means was just great. One other highlight has to be the parting words to the hostess, Sharon, right after the horse racing.
I’d heard plenty before I sat down to watch this movie. Things about how sad the story really is – especially considering what happens in the end. It’s definitely sad but I also had fun. A few tears were shed but nothing major; especially since usually, I’m quite the ‘boohooer’ (a new word I just made up).
If you like a good romantic movie, watch Me Before You because it’s not a bad one. Another reason to watch is to help one’s understanding of those in situations similar to that of Claflin’s character. I for one agree with his freedom to decide.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
