Me Before You is a surprisingly heartfelt, entertaining and enjoyable adaptation of Jojo Moyes’s novel. We’re enchanted by an expressive Emilia Clarke, who leaves her Game of Thrones shell in the dust, adopting a ditsy, sweet yet charming Bridget Jones Jnr. type character. While a little formulaic, this romance drama has a freshness spurred on by great co-lead chemistry and an intimate tone.
Take the core relational dynamic of The Intouchables, the heartfelt fun of The Bucket List and a dash of Bridget Jones’s Diary to get an idea of the exuberant and spirited “romcom” at play in Me Before You.
This captivating, heartrending and enjoyable romance comedy drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
