Last time we saw Emilia Clarke on the big screen, away from majestically riding dragons on the small, she appeared strangely out of her depth as a pale reiteration of Sarah Connor in the execrable Terminator Genisys. I’m not sure she’s any more convincing here as a manic pixie dream girl in Me Before You, dressed head-to-toe in eye-sore wardrobe that’s equal parts Teletubbies and granny vintage. You’ll either find her bubbly, foot-in-mouth dorkiness grating or charming, but at least she gives a respectable crack at it, and during the film’s best moments, works up palpable chemistry with co-star Sam Claflin, whose self-loathing quadriplegic becomes a gooey object of her affection, and vice versa.

A beautifully sugar-coated but tragic story with a deep message that increasingly demands a societal response

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...

Emilia Clark built her career on being one of the most popular characters of the hit TV show Game of Thrones. However with the unimpressive performance of Terminator Genisys, can she bounce back with this romantic drama and show that she’s as good on the big screen as she is on the show?

Emilia Clark stars as Louisa Clark who’s desperate to make a living to help her family. She takes a job taking care of recently paralyzed Will Traynor (Sam Claflin). Things doesn’t go smoothly for Louisa as Will is proving to be very difficult to work with. However with her charming personality she’s able to form a bond with Will which may ease him of his...

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...

Sobbing in my seat

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.

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.
