I read the book last May and since then I wanted to see the movie. I wanted to see it at the cinema but I couldn’t. It’s ok! I enjoyed it so much right now, alone in my living room, just me and the movie. You can find the book review here #bookreview…Me Before You: A Novel Paperback – by Jojo Moyes .
The book made me laugh and made me sad. But the movie…the movie is incredible.
Me Before You is a 2016 American-British romantic drama film directed by Thea Sharrock and adapted byJojo Moyes from her 2012 novel of the same name. The film stars Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin, Jenna Coleman, Charles Dance, Matthew Lewis, Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Janet McTeer. (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Me_Before_You_(film)).

There are so many things that I have to say about this movie. I didn’t cry but I laughed, it gave me chills, made me sad! That does not mean that it didn’t have an impact on me. As a matter of fact it hit me so bad that I had to stare at nothing for about 5 minutes and ask myself some questions: If all of the sudden, from being a healthy, active person, you must live your life paralyzed, what would you do? Would you accept that this is your new life style and try to adapt? Would you wish to die? Would you think about those who love you? Would you die like Will did if you could?
Would I? … I don’t know! The most important question is: Do you live your life fully right now? I don’t!
Will and Louisa met in not so happy circumstances. Louisa tried to make Will happy again and she did. For the time they spent together, 6 months, he was happy. But it was not enough to make him want to live. Was he selfish? Who are we to judge? We cannot know what would we do unless we would be in his situation!
Beautiful is not enough to describe this movie…this is about life and like Will wrote in his last letter to Louisa: Just live well…Just live…
Thanks for reading! Here is the trailer of this movie. If you have not seen it yet, I highly recommend it! 🙂
Can I add that the music choice for this movie is absolutely brilliant?! Beautiful!
