Me Before You

Unfortunately the story has been told before in other films so if you’re looking for something new, this isn’t the film for you.  Even the delightfully quirky lead Emilia Clarke isn’t very inspired, although I did enjoy her offbeat sense of style.She seems oddly matched with the debonair Sam Clafin, almost like watching a 14 year old with a late 20 thirty something.  Characters lack strong arc while the scenery/setting is often beautiful.  Music tends to via for attention leaving the actors painfully long interludes of sameness.  It’s a romantic wanna be whose only redemption is causing one to think about and possibly discuss “end of life” choices.  Date night, no, girls night with drinks, yes, streaming (guess you can’t say on video anymore)!
