This shocked and saddened us, despite the act of tin rattling being a bit of a parody. The money was used to develop stationery feeling empowering, pride filled mottos for disabled people.
Disabled activists speaking up about the problem with Me Before You showed people that we want to be heard, and that we want the film and TV industry to change. The media took notice. Me Before You is one of many films and TV programs to portray disability as a tragedy.
The only reason Will Traynor wants to end his life is because of his disability. Whilst none of these narratives bear any correlation to my life, they do have a very direct influence on how I am treated and viewed by others. One of the issues I had with Me Before You was that a non-disabled actor played a disabled character. This is an ongoing problem in TV and film. These films are about us…without us.

Jan 9, Full Review…. View All Critic Reviews Jan 26, Desperate for a job Lou Clark takes a position as a caretaker for a rich family's paraplegic son, and when she learns that he has made plans to commit physician assisted suicide she becomes despite to find a way to make him enjoy life again. Clarke and Claflin both give very strong performance and have good chemistry together. And the script is especially well-written; exploring physician assisted suicide without making judgments or coming off as heavy handed.
Thea Sharrock's directing style is also rather impressive, as is the soundtrack and score which compliments the tone remarkably well.
A little unconventional, Me Before You is a thought-provoking drama that addresses some interesting issues. Dann M Super Reviewer. Jan 20, Anthony L Super Reviewer.

Usually daunting Emilia Clarke is adorably giddy, and Sam Claflin is Sam Claflin, the handsome asshole with a sensitive soul underneath. The love story is quite predictable, but there's a second-act moral conundrum that provides some suspense. What's utterly stupid about this movie is that despite Lou being the ostensible protagonist, she is STILL merely a supporting character in her own story.
The central moral question of the film is Will's, and everything Lou does is in aid of that plotline. It's not even clear how and when she falls in love with Will. It's never talked about, and she lacks the agency to leave or at least tell off her well-meaning but clueless boyfriend or to follow her dreams of fashion school.
I'm also chafed because Will tries to pilot Lou's life from the start: telling her what movies to watch and how to wear a dress with confidence I mean, really?! She's already smokin'! He also obnoxiously calls her by her last name "Clark" all the time, which any girl who's had a middle school crush on that cool skater boi knows is a familiarizing but controlling tactic that makes us happy and hungry for his approval.
Was Will always this arrogant and patriarchal? Was his life truly charmed? That seems to be a better dramatic question, but the movie would still be about him. Lou is defined by the men around her, and that still seems to be the case from the synopsis of the sequel novel in which she meets a new man who helps her get over the erstwhile "You.
