We’re offering our readers an exclusive preview of the upcoming film adaptation, yes, really...
If you’re one of the few yet to read Jojo Moyes’ bestselling romantic novel, Me Before You, you’re in for a treat, because we’re offering our readers an exclusive preview of the upcoming film adaptation, directed by Thea Sharrock, which has been turned into a brilliant, tear-jerking screenplay by its original author.
The heartwarming film is set in a quaint English village and follows the story of Lou Clark (Emilia
Clarke, Game Of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen) and Will Traynor (Sam Claflin, last seen in The Hunger Games and Pirates of the Caribbean). A quirky and creative 26-year-old, Lou loves life, but her cheery outlook is seriously put to the test when she meets Will, a cynical guy who has all but given up.
Embarking on a series of adventures together, the couple find their lives – and hearts – changing in ways neither of them could have imagined; Lou teaches Will how to live and he teaches her how to love. Watch the trailer at marieclaire.co.uk/mebeforeyou to see the chemistry unfold! The beautiful adaptation, which is Sharrock’s debut feature film, stars a fabulous all-Brit cast, including Downton Abbey’s Brendan Coyle, Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), Matthew Lewis (the Harry Potter films), Joanna Lumley, Charles Dance (The Imitation Game), and Oscar-nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), while the talented behind-the-scenes team includes renowned costume designer Jill Taylor (My Week With Marilyn).
