Fans of the best – selling novel by Jojo Moyes were heartened to hear that the author wrote a screenplay, too. They were happy to see that the romantic movie Me Before You has also preserved all the lines that when read aloud have provided much warmth in the hearths of the readers.
If you haven’t seen the movie, it is a must-see … best in the company of your special one.
The story is as much drama as it is a tragedy: it successfully depicts so many rich layers from the novel that only lead to reminder of the importance of investing yourself fully in your life.
The son of the fabulously wealthy Traynors, Will (Sam Claflin), has been injured in a road accidents as a result of which he becomes paralyzed.
His mother Camilla Traynor, supported by her husband Stephen Traynor, employs the inexperienced but happy Lou (Emilia Clarke) to care for her son as a nurse, despite her lack of experience believing that she can illuminate his spirit. Will is the handsome moody, bossy asshole with a sensitive soul underneath, who Lou refuses to treat with kind gloves.
Soon his happiness means more to her than she has expected. Chatty , quirky , funny Lou eventually manages to break through the wall that Will has built around himself … and a lovely relationship develops.
