Joblo | 'Me Before You' Review


Of course, this is a big-studio romantic comedy-drama, meaning there’s tons of fluff, including Clarke’s relationship with her lunk-headed boyfriend (Matthew David Lewis) and an inevitable ending that gives Clarke too convenient an escape from her working-class lifestyle. Maybe if Claflin’s character hadn’t been a castle-dwelling rogue Me Before You might have been more compelling, but I expect the audience wants an escape and that’s what this provides. Overall, it’s not a bad piece of schmaltz and sure enough the packed Thursday-night audience I saw this with was loaded with women audibly weeping throughout the conclusion – always a good sign.

The story is too old to be commented.
