Me Before You Film Review

Inspired by the frenetic novel by author Jojo Moyes, the romantic blend of disaster and warm comedy “I’m in Front of You” floated through cinemas at a time that seemed both deeply unhappy and strangely perfect. Thanks to the countless sequels, reboots and comic book adaptations that went into the film, ready to embrace summer with its sparkling appeal, the humorous combination of youth drama and British atmosphere in “I’m in Front of You” not only was able to present the audience with a disputable love story in its most bizarre form, but also gave the audience an idea of what “I’m in front of you.” We are also an interesting star duo, both charismatic and moderately strange.


When the eccentric and endlessly optimistic Louise Clark (Emilia Clarke) suddenly starts working for an elusive young banker paralyzed to the neck, what starts as a promising way to keep her family afloat suddenly turns into a reasonable search for her true identity. As the loving guardian of Will Trainor (Sam Claflin), once successful and charismatic, Clark must overcome not only the difficulties of caring for a bodily and emotionally broken man, but also his touching feelings for the man who truly revealed his hidden potential. In conflict with the attraction of a dying man who has lost faith in the world, the optimistic Louise uses every drop of sporadic compassion she can show to influence a demoralized soul to regain the essence of her past.

In early June, with its typical young, mature and innocent story similar to 2014’s “The Mistake in Our Stars,” two years ago, the charming band of contradictory love we find in “I’m In Front of You” uses a similar tactic. and he gives two funny performances against the background of emotional surprise. I’m in front of you brings another bestseller to the big screen, which tells about the strangeness and innocent passion, highlighted by its two phenomenal stars. While he can still fall into boredom and stereotypes when he reaches his romantic peak, and is undoubtedly depressed by his graduation, this worthy adaptation presented the audience with a sympathetic cast who faced a pleasant adventure in unexpected love.


While the deep story of one guy’s journey to discover his once-joyful past and a girl’s path to enlightenment could be the driving force behind the novel, I found that the most compelling element of the film is its strange but fascinating cast of characters. Under the guidance of Emilia Clarke, the star of Game of Thrones, and Sam Claflin, a graduate of The Hunger Games, two English actors managed to interest me in the film, even if it lost momentum a little during the course of the film. Two actors I’ve only seen in a few roles—Emilia Clarke in “Sad Apologies for the Terminator Movie” and Claflin in “The Hunger Games,” good and bad—it was very interesting to watch them get rid of their American accents and adopt their European features. Both had their quirks and emotional stories that could be seen separately, they may not have had the best chemistry in the world, but they were undoubtedly great when exchanging sometimes clever, sometimes banal dialogue with each other. Clarke played the awesome role of Kirsch, a 20-year-old working girl dressed as a 10-year-old girl, and Chaflin, who presented us with a cynical but sarcastic version of Professor X, both results of the film were quite interesting not only because of their exuberant British accents.

The rest of the cast provided their usual supporting characters from the young mature novel, from compassionate but conspiratorial parent characters to loyal best friends/brothers, to promote the depraved behavior of the protagonist. From the loving parents of Will Trainor, played by Janet McTeer and Charles Dance, to the charming nurse and Trainor, played by Steve Peacock, the supporting actors in the film also tried to maintain the atmosphere, even as the film plunged into darker themes. One of my favorite and awesome actors was supposed to be Matthew Lewis, a Harry Potter graduate who played the role of Clark’s backstage girlfriend Louise and offered a humorous and marginal performance of “the hole.”


Overall, while “I’m in Front of You” certainly doesn’t surpass heartbreaking novels like “Titanic” or “The Notebook,” it featured a pleasant storyline of two conflicting characters who find unexpected surprises in the most unexpected places. Funny in all its British humor and charismatic stars, “I’m in Front of You” may not be the best young mature novel we have this year, but it was something that could have attracted me. If you’re a fan of the novel or just looking for another ounce of what “The Mistake in Our Stars” has given you (teen jokes and depressing connotations), you’ll probably love this movie and you won’t leave the movie until you’re emotionally ready.

I gave this film 7 out of 10 points for its pleasant duet of leading and supporting actors, its banal but touching story about broken people who find solace in each other, and its adventures with wish lists and the atmosphere of “Downton Abbey”.
