Bubbly Louisa Clark (GoT‘s Emilia Clarke) loves her job at The Butter Bun café, so when she’s laid off she’s hit somewhat for six. She eventually lands a gig caring for disabled banker Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), who was left paralysed following a motorcycle accident some two years prior. His iciness and Louisa’s effervescence don’t exactly gel initially, but she wears him down and the two become firm friends. There may be more feelings there, but Louisa has a rather uncaring boyfriend to think about. Will they? Won’t they? Will he? Will she?! It’s complicated, not least of all by a pact Will previously made with his parents. With no Nicholas Sparks movie released in the last few minutes, Me Before You – based on Jojo Moyes’ best-selling novel of the same name – fills the tear-jerking romantic drama space admirably.
