Thea Sharrock United States, 2016

msmichel's rating of the film Me Before You

Every now and then a rom-com comes along that you just have to surrender yourself to and let it play with your emotions. Sharrock is well aware her film isn't grand drama but date night entertainment...that delivers in spades. Emilia Clarke is just so enchanting here that she compensates for any missteps along the way. There are many rom-coms that are just disposable, forgettable blinks...this isn't one of them.
