Tear-jerker you might have seen Be­fore

The Invercargill Eye - - YOUR HEALTH -

heart-tug­ging bal­ladry from the likes of Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran, the film is pure fairytale, each beat care­fully engi­neered to squeeze ev­ery drop out of our wa­ter­works, while it fan­cies it­self as a soulaf­firm­ing jour­ney that tran­scends pesky class and phys­i­cal bar­ri­ers.

The ob­scene wealth of Claflin’s char­ac­ter, Wil­liam Traynor, al­lows for much fan­tasy ful­fill­ment, giv­ing Clarke’s un­stop­pably sunny Lou carte-blanche op­por­tu­nity to brain­storm ex­trav­a­gant dates in a race-against-time plot to thwart his sui­ci­dal wishes. If you want to see a bum­ble­bee- stock­ing-wear­ing Khaleesi chip away at the prickly ex­te­rior of a rich, hand­some, wheelchair­bound for­mer banker, here’s your movie.

Emilia Clarke’s on-screen wardrobe is as bright as her char­ac­ter Lou’s per­son­al­ity in Me Be­fore You.
