(2016) (Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
