Here’s all the info on this brand-new romance!

Let’s face it, it’s been a while since a great cinematic love story has come along and this newcomer certainly looks like it has all the ingredients to set hearts racing. So, if you’re thinking about checking out this new film, we’ve got a cheat sheet with all the details!

Who’s in it?

The film stars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen to all you Game of Thrones fans) and Sam Claflin (Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games). 

What’s it about?

Louisa Clark (Clarke) takes a job as a caregiver for William Traynor (Claflin), a handsome, wealthy young man who has been injured in an accident, restricting him to a wheelchair and very little movement. Before long, Louisa discovers that William intends to end his life by means of assisted suicide and decides she is going to change his mind somehow.

Why should I care?

Let’s just set aside this likable pair of actors for a moment. The story is as much about true love as it is about finding purpose and hope in life. C’mon, this stuff is universal! And sweeping views of castle ruins don’t hurt either.
