Storyline

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they're going to change each other for all time. Written by nattattck-11

Trivia

Janet McTeer who plays Will's mother has previously played a character similar to Emilia Clarke's Lou: in Hawks (1988) she played Hazel, an awkward and insecure working class girl with a terrible dress sense who decides to show a terminally ill man a good time even though he is rather cruelly rejecting her.

Goofs

During the scene when Louisa watches the birthday video on Will's Mac, you will notice the left side of her face deforming from bad keying/roto due to the green screen. See more »

Quotes

Camilla Traynor: [to her husband] I cannot believe that you are willing to help our son end his life.
Stephen Traynor: I'd rather that than risk him trying again, alone. It wasn't a cry for help, Camilla. He meant it. You know that. Now, this way we can be with him, supporting him,loving him.
Camilla Traynor: [shouting] He's my son!
Stephen Traynor: Yes, he's my son too! It's his choice. This is what *he* wants. You know how much pain he's in.

Amazing
3 July 2016 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It stayed very true to the book and I love the book. I think Emilia Clarke was born to play her. I feel like she was just playing herself cause she has a personality like that in real life. It was pure joy to watch her play Lou. The expressions she makes, the way she talks and most of all, her amazing clothes! I loved every single outfit she wore. This film made me laugh and it made me very emotional, just like the book. I think Sam Claflin was also born to play Will. They had an amazing chemistry throughout the entire film and the rest of the cast is also spot on. There are of course some parts from the book that were left out but nonetheless, this film was still amazing. I also want to point out that the soundtrack of the movie is amazing as well.
