QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Drama: A young British woman takes a job as caregiver to a quadriplegic man, who changes her whole outlook on life and love.
PLOT:
Louisa Clark (EMILIA CLARKE) is a 26-year-old woman living in a small town in England. She just got laid off from her job at a local bakery and still lives at home with her unemployed father, Bernard (BRENDAN COYLE); her doting mother, Josie (SAMANTHA SPIRO); and her college-bound sister Treena (JENNA COLEMAN). Louisa has been dating a fitness spa owner named Patrick (MATTHEW LEWIS) for the past seven years, but really feels like she is going nowhere. Still, she has a lot of spunk, wears quirky and colorful clothing, and is a genuinely nice person to all she meets.

In desperate need of a job to help her family make ends meet, she accepts a position as caregiver to a quadriplegic man named Will Traynor (SAM CLEFLIN). Before his tragic injury, Will was a successful businessman and quite an active sportsman. He had a beautiful girlfriend, Alicia (VANESSA KIRBY), a loyal best friend, Rupert (BEN LLOYD-HUGHES), and he came from great wealth, even living in a local castle.

Deeply depressed and suicidal, Will has made his mother, Camilla (JANET McTEER), and father, Stephen (CHARLES DANCE), a deal. He has agreed to live another six months to see if he can exist in his current shape. If not, he will travel with his medical aide, Nathan (STEPHEN PEACOCKE), to Switzerland where assisted suicide is legal and end his life. Camilla hires the sunny, cute Louisa as Will's companion because she has hope the young woman will give him a reason to live.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens who have read the book and/or are fans of the two leads from their work in "The Hunger Games" (Claflin) and "Game of Thrones" (Clarke) will have some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For thematic elements and some suggestive material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
