This movie has some controversial topics involved and does not have a happily ever after type of ending - but honestly it's nice to see that it's not as cliche as a lot of other love stories you see. It is a sweet, beautiful, and sad story, and it's a situation that is more realistic than people probably realize.
Louisa is a sweet, chatty, and cheerful young woman who gets hired to be a caregiver for Will - a quadriplegic who once was a confident, outgoing, active, man who had "the perfect life", but due to an accident, was left severely disabled, and has lost most everything that meant a great deal to him, including his girlfriend, job, and independence. Louisa makes it her mission to try to make Will's life enjoyable again.
One of the reasons I like this movie is that it is not a love story that gives you the unrealistic happy ending that so other movies give you. Reality is that love does not always conquer all. I know there are some disabled people who have seen this movie and were offended by the ending. However, I have to say that I see this movie as being relatable to people - and not just to those who are disabled in a wheelchair. I don't think that there is an underlying message that life isn't worth living if you're disabled. It goes way beyond that, and not everyone's situation is the same. People may call Will's actions selfish, but would you say the same about someone who has been in agonizing pain fighting cancer and decides to stop treatments? Will is constantly on death's door, in and out of the hospital, weak immune system, is in a lot of pain, and has absolutely no chance of improving, and in fact is expected to only get worse. Who are we to say that someone should be forced to live with that kind of pain and suffering? Lou does a wonderful thing for Will, in that she gives him a reason to want to wake up every morning. But loving someone is not always enough, and I can understand the reason for Will's decision, as heartbreaking as it is.
This is a sad story, but it does give a realistic perspective. Get your box of tissues ready.
I would definitely recommend this movie and say prepare yourself, because you will cry.
