|Amazing pair of Sam and Emilia.|
Me Before You Review - Another best selling book adapted into big screen flick.
|Everybody say Awwwwwwwww......|
Will Traynor (Sam Claflin) is a carefree daredevil who is left paralysed after a motorcycle accident. While Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) is a bubbly girl in need of a job to help her parents to make ends meet. As luck or fate would have it, Will’s concerned parents hire Lou to be Will’s new caretaker. What begins as a resentful relationship blossoms into a loving companionship with Lou trying to convince Will to live longer while he ‘teaches’ her to live her life boldly. With such strong bond formed between them, can the two love birds manage to change each other’s mind or decision for better or worse?

First thing first…the casting of Sam and Emilia was spot on to bring Will and Lou’s character to live. These two have a very strong chemistry towards each other, it will get you rooting for their relationship to survive any situation. Emilia will steal your heart while Sam can melt girls heart just by a simple move of his eyebrow and the oh so perfect dimples. That being said, thank God for the perfect pair casting because to me personally, the story felt pretty short from achieving what would have been a much greater height. It did offer some amount of satisfaction but failed to wow me over. Perhaps its just me but I noticed some viewers were down to the last bit of tissue wiping off their tears towards the end of the film.
|....close shave but not quite a clean sweep....if you know what I mean...tsk tsk|
The story did however offer an interesting premise on people fall in love. You can’t choose who, where, when, why and how…you just do, just fall in love...trust me, I know. Hehehe.
P/s - Thank you Lau for the preview passes.
