Me Before You signed poster giveaway with Warner Bros.

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited down to London for a special viewing of Me Before You at the Warner Bros. Studios. It was the first time I'd ventured into London alone when I wasn't going to a blogging conference and I was rather nervous. 

As it turned out I got into London on the train without any issues and managed to find my way to the Warner Bros. Studios. It was quite daunting walking into the place and as I wandered up to the reception desk the gentlemen welcomed me and handed me my pass. 

Before we were shown into the screening room I thought about the movie I was about to see. I'll be honest and say that I hadn't even heard of Me Before You. Looking at the promotion images I figured it would be a romantic comedy, I love romantic comedies and was looking forward to watching.

Even Batman was looking forward to watching!

Starring Emilia Clarke (played Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin (played Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games) Me Before You is no romantic comedy. From a few minutes into the film I soon realised Me Before You is no romantic comedy, in fact it is based on a book of the same name by Jojo Moyes.

About the Movie

Me Before You is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It is not the type of movie I'd have usually chosen to watch but I'm so glad I was invited to see it. This movie touched my heart and had me rooting for the main characters even though I'd started out disliking one of them. 

A few minutes into the movie I spotted Lou's shoes, they reminded me of Irregular Choice shoes and I instantly respected her choice in footwear. Her wild and enthusiastic character is evident right from the start and you know that she is going to have a positive impact on whoever she meets. 

Then she meets Will.

At first I didn't like Will, he was rude and abrupt, but as I learned more about his character I began to warm to him. Despite his own efforts he became considerate and kind, and by the end of the movie I felt like I knew him. 

That's the magic of Me Before You, you're taken on a journey along with the characters and by the end your rooting for a particular outcome, even though you know it's unlikely. As a result of seeing Me Before You I want to read the book! That's the sign of a good movie.

Here's the synopsis:

Louisa "Lou" Clark (Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge. Taking a job at the local "castle", she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye. No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up. That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living. Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives - and hearts- changing in ways neither one could have imagined.

And the trailer

I don't want to ruin your enjoyment of the movie by telling you what happens but you should definitely watch Me Before You.
