About this movie

Young and quirky Louisa "Lou" Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will's cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.

Glorifies assisted suicide...yet makes no valid argument for it other than, "he's in pain." Yet we never see the pain or his conviction other than the very quite conviction of a very stubborn snob - not a strong argument for a difficult subject for so many people. Life is so much more precious than this movie tries to portray. Boo!

Im not normally one to complain, but this movie discriminates against the disabled by preaching that its better to die than to be disabled, and the movie neglects alot of things related to that, that could have changed his supposed mindset. Truly distasteful. The worst part is that the research done for the movie never bothered to collab with the disabled community. More Hollywood trash, that is disconnected from reality

The beginning concept of this story had so much potential that in my opinion just didn't quite wrap up well. I'm not a sucker for happy endings either. I like stories with realistic endings. I just feel like I didn't see the point , or the teaching behind this? I see some people say is to raise awareness about depression or people with disabilities but, yet I still don't see how this specific movie achieved that. Just my opinion. And now I'm super sad.
