Here's what critics are saying about movie below.

"A harmless enough entry in the "adorable mite tames surly masculine beast" romantic-weeper genre, hitting all the right beats with the clink of an expertly struck cowbell." - Time Magazine.

"Me Before You is toe-curling in the extreme, a glossy romantic drama that skims over complex issues to do with disability and assisted suicide in a frivolous and manipulative way." - Independent UK.

"The fault is not in our stars. In breakout performances, Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin are magnetic as soulmates doomed by a Dire Medical Prognosis." - US Weekly.

"It has an ace up its sleeve: It's British. That's to say: It's able to temper the melodrama, be humorous as often as it is romantic, and generally give off an air of primp restraint." - Metro.

"Predictable but still affecting, Me Before You is wonderfully elevated by an enchanting Emilia Clarke." - Cinema Blend.

"It may not quite rise to the level of a classic three-hankie tearjerker, but it's proof that sometimes one or two hankies is more than enough to get the job done." - Entertainment Weekly.

"Far too much of this high-gloss tearjerker proceeds as a by-the-numbers romantic fantasy, nudging the viewer every step of the way." - Hollywood Reporter.

"These are deep, complicated issues the film wades into, and it quickly winds up out of its depth." - Variety.


Directed by Thea Sharrock and written by Jojo Moyes, the film debuts in theaters June 3, 2016.
