It all starts with our male lead, 31-year-old William Traynor, played by Sam Claflin, who is living the great life of water skiing and high-diving. But then disaster strikes at the blink of an eye: he comes face to headlights with a motorcycle, and he becomes struck with a lifelong condition called Quadriplegia.
Quadriplegia is a condition that permanently paralyzes the spine, arms, and legs, causing all sorts of symptoms such as:
Loss of bladder and bowel control
It is a very limiting condition that bounds you to a wheelchair and forces you to rely on others for aid in all the little things.
Here is when his new caretaker enters the picture. Will seems to be living fine in a wooden apartment with an assistant for his wheelchair, but he needs someone else to help with minor tasks such as eating and getting medications. Her name is Louisa Clark, played by Emilia Clarke. Louisa is 26 and desperate for work. This job requires no experience, so she is quick to accept the position.
Here is the film’s greatest strength: the way the relationship between these two is developed. Both players are beyond exceptional in their roles.Read more ›
I'm torn about my rating, because on the one hand I really liked the lead (actors) characters chemistry, and how they made positive changes in each others lives.
BUT I do NOT condone Will's decision at the end, nor is the storyline consistent.
There were a series of contradictions in the storyline that I just didn't understand....
If Will wanted to die so badly, why go through all the trouble of going to Switzerland so he could have an assisted suicide when he could have died from pneumonia 4 times over (especially the 3'd bout)?! Not sure how things are in England, but in the States, all he would have needed was a Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare stipulating his wishes-- such as if he wanted lifesaving measures in place or not (oxygen, antibiotics, etc.).
It really would have saved his family a measure of heartache in the end; at least his poor mother clinging to the hope that he'd change his mind in 6 months. And Lou... time, energy, effort, her 7 yr. relationship (albeit to a narcissist), and a romantic attachment.
I understand his disability was a struggle, and that one never knew when he'd take a turn for the worse.
But I can't help but think of real life examples of people who had similar circumstances, and refused simply to give up (such as Christopher Reeve who couldn't breathe, eat, or talk normally) because they loved life, and their loved ones!Read more ›
My husband watched this with me, last night and he loved it. He said it is probably one of his favorite movie and he wasn't just saying that.
Reason number one, to love this movie: Sam Claflin. He is hot and dreamy. I just love him. His character, Wil Traynor is complex, depressed, whitty, and you can't help but fall in love with him.
Reason number two, to love this movie: Emilia Clarke. Oh, my. As a huge Game of Thrones fan, I love Emilia Clarke. But, you just can't help but fall in love with her crazy and outgoing character, Louisa Clark. Emilia couldn't have played her better and what about those facial expressions??!!! They are adorable.
Reason number three, to love this movie: British accents galore....my weakness.
Reason number four, to love this movie: Scenery from Wales and Majorca, where the movie was filmed.
This is a beautiful movie. It makes you think. It makes you laugh and it will make you cry....cry....cry!!!!!!!!!!!! And, you will be left talking about "what would you do?" and "how would you handle that situation?"
