Me Before You
A high flying young professional is seriously and permanently injured in a street accident and despite a growing relationship with his carer is intent on pursuing euthanasia.
'Me Before You' is a rather bland film detailing a growing romance. It has drawn considerable critics for its euthanasia sub text and I can understand why. The film portrays a wealthy man with considerable support and advantages not withstanding his crippling condition and the supposed pain he is experiencing to justify his intentions is scarcely evident. The euthanasia debate is a very delicate one and whilst I am in favour subject to safeguards this film is unworthy of that issue.
