Me before you (2016)

What starts as a simple story slowly grows into a heart warming tale. You get glimpses of ‘Guzaarish’ and ‘The Fault in our stars’, but an overall muted version of the two. It’s not intense or overtly emotional but strikes a chord nonetheless.

Emilia Clarke is the soul of the film. She smiles with her eyes, eyebrows, chin, hands, clothes and shoes. An impeccable performance as Lou Clark, she is full of life and has a strong sense of duty.

Sam Claflin is the focal point of the story. While everything revolves around him, it’s his very restrained efforts which keep him enigmatic till the end. His minimal words and actions give us an insight into his world and volumes on how to live and appreciate life.

A sensitive balanced take on difficult choices and unlikely relationships.

3/5
