Rated PG-13 · 110 minutes · 2016

Drama, Romance
Adapted by Jojo Moyes from her own novel, this juvenile romance stars Emilia Clarke (HBO's Game of Thrones) as a sunny working-class girl who becomes a professional caregiver and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) as the quadriplegic aristocrat who becomes her charge and eventually her Byronic lover. With her comically loud outfits and mile-wide grin, Clarke overemotes so feverishly that she sometimes suggests a silent-movie gamine, though eventually the mounting drama absorbs her outsize performance. I can't recommend this movie to anyone older than high school age, but French-cinema fans might want to check out the laughably incongruous scene in which Claflin persuades Clarke to watch Of Gods and Men, Xavier Beauvois's harrowing metaphysical drama about a group of martyred Franciscan monks. Thea Sharrock directed.
