Me Before You is a romantic drama adapted from the novel of the same name. It is an incredibly heart-breaking watch as we see a woman from a small town form an unlikely bond with a recently paralysed man she is taking care of.
Sam Clafin stars as Will Traynor who was a successful banker and party animal before a motorcycle accident leaves him paralysed from the neck down. Starring opposite Clafin is Emilia Clarke playing Lou Clark, a woman with no prior experience in caring except for a cherry disposition that Traynor’s dad believes in. They are both from different worlds but despite their differences, they fall in love.
It was released 5 years ago and despite their being all that time 5 to process the film’s heartbreaking ending, it still hurts every time after any re-watch. The film delves into disability and the impacts this has on mental health and is a powerful and beautiful story worthy of all the tears you will definitely shed.
