A touch of romance for Valentines Day


Who doesn't love a romance novel? What about a romantic movie? And with Valentine's Day coming up, who isn't looking forward to a little romance, whether in real life or in the movies?

While this movie Me Before You doesn't come out until June 3, 2016 in the US, the trailer is out and gives you something to look forward to before summer.

This movie starring Sam Claflin (remember him as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games and as William in Snow White and the Huntsman?) and Emilia Clarke (best  known as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones), is based off the best-selling romantic novel written by Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Fiction in 2013.

The story follows young Lou Clark whose "ordinary" life is changed after working for Will Traynor, who had become disabled after an accident. As one would guess, after having lived an "extraordinary" life and then being confined to a wheelchair, Will becomes quite a challenge for Lou, especially after she learns that Will did not want to continue living a life that was no longer "extraordinary". 

I have no idea how this movie is going to end. Sometimes movies don't follow the novels they were based on and if it follows the original story...well, I won't spoil it for you. Go read the book and see what you think.
