'Me Before You'- Sparks off Love
A story set in the backdrop of the English countryside, Me Before You is nothing like the typical boy meets girl story….! It is fresh and vibrant with a magical touch that will make you believe, once again, that love is found in places where you least expect it!
Opposites attract! Not only in books and movies, but in real life too! That is what Me Before You will tell you in its timeless, magnificent way. When Lou (Emilia Clarke) meets Will Traynor (Sam Claflin) for the first time, its like a stellar collision between two utterly different luminaries.
Louisa Clark (Lou), a quirky, creative 26-year old, moves from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family meet ends while sacrificing her dreams in progression. With no clear direction in life and no hopes of reaching her dreams, she takes up the job of caregiver and nurse at the local castle where she meets Will and her whole life changes. Will’s sarcastic and hateful demeanor makes her question her every move while posing it a challenge to be around him all day.
Apparently, it’s not Will’s fault either. Survivor of a fatal accident, Will, a wheelchair bound wealthy banker with a lethal spinal injury is all but cynical and uncouth. A once adventurous soul who lived life to the fullest, Will has become a tetchy self who has given up hope of ever living again. All this comes to a change as Lou enters his life with a bout of sunshine and breeds the desire to live again while irrevocably making him fall in love with her.
But all good things come to an end…….and so does the movie!
But trust me or not trust me, Me Before You will give you a lifetime experience. Perfectly justifying the quote that “Love, like wildflowers, is found in the most unexpected of places,” the breathtaking performance of each of the characters will give you the sensation that you’re part of the story in every way. And you'll feel inspired every moment. Just like WIll Traynor puts it, "Push yourself. Don't settle. Just live."
Highly recommended, watch it regardless you're cheerful or lonely.
Nothing can lift your mood more like a refreshing movie!
