Me Before You Hits Major Controversy Among Disabled Community — Find Out Why Some Aren't Loving The Romance Film!
Me Before You tells the story of an able-bodied woman (played by Emilia Clarke) who falls in love with the young quadriplegic man (played by Sam Claflin) for whom she is tasked to care.
That may sound sweet and benign, but it's causing a LOT of controversy!
The plot centers around Clarke's character, Louisa, caring for Claflin's character Will, and it eventually finds the two head over heels in love.
But it's catching controversy from the disabled community for all the wrong reasons — and it has nothing to do with even the usual controversy that arises when able-bodied actors portray disabled people on camera!
No, this has to do with a specific plot point in the movie — so, if you haven't seen it yet, warning — there are SPOILERS (below)!!!
