​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

ME BEFORE YOU (2016)










The about-to-be-released date movie/chick flick/tearjerker Me Before You is #76 and while you have a pretty good idea of where the story is headed, this film beats Nicholas Sparks by far. Emilia Clarke is adorable as a quirky 20-something named Louisa who wears interesting ensembles and takes a job as caretaker to Will (Sam Claflin), who was a very active and athletic man before becoming a paraplegic after being hit by a motorcycle. He dislikes the world in general and Lou ...in particular before he finally warms to her. They have great chemistry together and he seems to regain the will to live - or does he? Yes this is formula but this is well done formula with solid performances and even some nice moments from Charles Dance and Janet McTeer as Will's wealthy parents. Me Before You will not be liked by everybody but so what? I liked it.

SHOULD TLA SEE THIS? Gosh, just to see Emilia Clarke from her favorite show Game of Thrones if nothing else.
