Movie Review: Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin shine but ‘Me Before You’ lacks depth!
Star Cast: Sam Claflin, Emilia Clarke, Matthew Lewis, Janet McTeer, Charles Dance and Ben Lloyd-Hughes

Director: Thea Sharrock

Producer: Alison Owen and Karen Rosenfelt

Claps for: Performances and Direction

Slaps for: Screenplay and Story

What’s New: NOTHING

Popcorn Refill: Anytime you want!

Plot: Louisa Clark, a girl with a cheerful attitude, is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for the wealthy young banker Will Traynor who was 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.

Performances: It is Emilia Clarke who shines in her role as the full-of-life and cheerful girl who refuses to give up on her Will Traynor. This movie belongs to her and there’s not a single scene which doesn’t have her and does not get mesmerized by her charm.

Sam Claflin is equally good but there’s not much to his character than sitting on a chair and sobbing. He excels in the scenes where he gets to do more than just sulking- like the emotional; scene with Emilia at the beach, or staring at her while he falls for her at the concert.

Matthew Lewis plays the self-centered and jealous boyfriend with perfection and provides a good amount of humour.

Rest all the actors have done a commendable job.

Direction: Director Thea Sharrock gives her 100 percent to make this flick come across as a beautiful summer romance flick that couples will watch holding hands and wiping tears off each other. The way she presents the movie is wonderful- and perhaps the only reason why the audience would prefer sitting on their seats till the very end.

It is not Sharrock who disappoints but the story and screenplay that lacks depth and fails to convince us. The chemistry between the lead characters fizzles out soon- and while Emilia’s character is well written, there are flaws in Sam’s character. Plus, the romance between them looks sudden and not something the develops over the time.

Overall, ‘Me Before You’ could have been a much better film, even though it may succeed in bringing tears to the hardcore romantic-drama fans!

Combo-On-Offer: Romance + Drama

Verdict: We give ‘Me Before You’ SLAPS for being another sob story that lacks depth, despite some wonderful performances and direction.
