A melodrama with soft-rock ballads where its beating heart should be.

It’s not perfect, but the novel’s five million readers have nothing to worry about: it’s totally loyal to the book (unsurprisingly since Moyes wrote the script).

There’s gentle manipulation, and then there’s having your arms manacled to a freight train of weepy catharsis...

A recent screening of "Me Before You" concluded with audible sniffles and even a sob or two. Why not gales of laughter or quiet snores? These are the mysteries that trouble a critic's uneasy mind.

Transferring from theatre, director Thea Sharrock ramps up the property porn, while failing to fill this space with anything like recognisable human activity or emotion.

You can't blame audiences too much for being seduced by two shining young stars in a movie romance that hits the spot, bitter and sweet.

The chemistry between the leads and a few finely etched supporting turns provide welcome counterweight to the movie’s formulaic progression...

The film will feel familiar to anyone who’s sniffled through "Love Story" or "The Fault in Our Stars." It’s better than both.

In movies, as in life, appearances can be deceptive. The trailer for Me Before You (2016) promises a sweet romantic comedy but the film is an emotionally challenging confrontation with the moral dilemmas of assisted dying. It is a beautifully sugar-coated but tragic story with a deep message that increasingly demands a societal response. Full of fairy-tale...

This is one of those kind of movies that have been discussed around the water cooler (do people still do that, is that still a thing?) at work as it has stirred up quite a bit of anger in the disabled community. So, whatever side of the debate you are on, this is definitely worth a watch. Emilia Clarke is the absolutely star of this film and is so far...

I am a big sucker for movies like this and I found this one didn't disappoint. Also great the trailer didn't give the ending away.

I thought 'Me Before You' played it very safe for a film in what I'd describe as being the weepy genre. The plot moved at a good pace but I thought the ending could have been better and more poignant but overall it lived up to my expectations and I thought Emilia Clarke was the standout. Worth a watch if you enjoy this kind of genre

An utterly delightful movie that will tug at your heart-strings. It was captivating from start to finish, it will have you genuinely belly-laughing and crying and then send you home with plenty of food for thought.
