Me Before You (2016)


Reviewed by Emily Terasa (Library Staff)

If you are looking for a movie to cry during, look no further than Me Before You. This movie is based off of the novel with the same name, written by Jojo Moyes. This movie follows two people, Will Traynor, a wealthy banker who is now paralyzed after a tragic accident, and Louisa ‘Lou’ Clark, his new caretaker. The movie follows their story, from their first meeting, to how Lou tries to get Will to live life to the fullest even though difficulties arise. While I won’t spoil the ending, this movie is touching, poignant, and tear-jerking (at least to me).

My favorite part of the movie is the actors, especially Emilia Clarke, who plays Lou Clark. She is quirky and fun and doesn’t take life too seriously. Plus her wardrobe is pretty epic. What amazed me the most was how much I believed her in the role; I often had to remind myself that this was the same actor who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. The two roles are completely different, and she excels at both of them.

While I shed many tears during this movie, I really enjoyed it. I was not a big fan of the book, so I was not sure what to expect and this movie exceeded my expectations.
