The countdown is on people. Me Before You is hitting theaters on June 3rd, so I've begun stocking up on Kleenex for this must see film (at least it should be "must see" if it's anywhere near as heartbreakingly beautiful as the novel). I'm getting all verklempt just thinking about it; heck, even the trailer had me tearing up a little. Ugh, I'm strategizing already on what the best time is to see this film. Do I go to a really early screening when less people are likely to be around, or a really late screening when the dark of night will help camouflage my red splotchy face and runny nose. Yes, I'm an ugly crier and this film will make me cry, there might even be a choked sob or two.
Don't let the prospect of tears deter you from seeing the film though, after all some of the best movies had us crying our eyes out; how about The Fault in Our Stars, Titanic ("I'll never let go, Jack"), Beaches, Up, and Steel Magnolias. Everyone needs a good cry sometimes. Why not do it in a room full of people doing the same?
Even the movie poster is downright dreamy. Below the poster is a brief film summary for those of you who haven't been lucky enough to read the book yet (What are you waiting for?).
