Me Before You, Errol Flynn Filmhouse, Fri 8 Jul

rsz_me_before_youLouisa Clark lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge. Taking a job at the local “castle,” she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor, a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior. Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives—and hearts—changing in ways neither one could have imagined. Possibly a bit too mushy for me but I’m willing to give it a go.
