Movie Review: Me Before You

Me Before You: Young and quirky Louisa "Lou" Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will's cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.

Rating: ★★★★☆ (4 out of 5)

Review: This probably shouldn't be called a movie review, because I mostly only want to rant. I don't think I need to review this since; 1) there's tons of nicer reviews out there that you can find, 2) I have already written a review on the book, so you already know how I felt about Me Before You. You can read the review here.

Fortunately, the movie did justice for the wonderful book, even though there were a few scenes or parts that I wish they didn't change. The movie started out well, and I gotta say they did a great job choosing Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke for Will and Lou. They portrayed the character perfectly! Lou's style of clothing was really quirky, but the way Emilia brought it made her look unique and gorgeous. And of course I couldn't stop gushing about how ridiculously Sam look as Will.

A few things that disappoint me though;

  • Why didn't Will's sister exist in the movie?
  • Lou's relationship with her sister, Katrina, was actually good (they argued a lot in the book)
  • Mr. Traynor is not cheating on anyone (or at least I didn't notice it, since he seems good with Mrs. Traynor in the movie?)

Basically, I'm okay with the movie. I'm just seriously upset Lou didn't dance with Will wearing the red dress. But yes, Lou really looked adorable wearing the bumblebee tights.

Till next time ♡ Love, Aera
