Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
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 a car 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
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.

When Will and Lou reach an edge of almost the top of the castle, a front close-up shot to their faces shows calm air while in all other scenes, it is windy. That shot must have been taken on another day. See more »
I have to tell you something.
I know. I know about Switzerland, I have known for months. Listen I know this is not how you would have chosen it, but I can make you happy.
No Clarke. This could be a good life, but it's not my life, it's not even close. You never saw be before. I loved my life. I really loved it. I can't be the kind of man who just accepts this.
You're not giving it a chance, you're not giving me a chance. I have become a whole new person these last six months because ...

All movies can be scrutinized for faults, as some reviewers have done, but if the movie makes a mark, then those faults really don't matter, do they? I found the "angry" Will Traynor not completely believable, not like the anti-social Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets, but Sam Clafin did well with his transformation. Emilia Clarke was absolutely wonderful and I will be on the lookout for other roles she has taken and will undertake in the future. Kudos also to the characters who played Will's parents, Janet McTeer and Charles Dance. Two thumbs up for the movie. Am seriously considering whether the movie ought to bump another movie off my favorite 50 relationship movie list.
