Halfway through "Me Before You," I swore to myself I wouldn't, because the movie felt overly broad, overly simplistic, lacking depth both in characterization and in treatment of the serious issues it raises.That story is known to fans of the novel by Jojo Moyes, who adapted her book here. Like the superior 2014 tearjerker "The Fault in Our Stars," this film version, directed by Thea Sharrock, probably is a slam dunk for the book's fans, who will likely be crying from the first scene.Lou is determined, and soon enough [too soon, dramatically speaking] Will is submitting to the warmth of her smile.Like Julia Roberts's opera moment in "Pretty Woman," it's her first such experience, and she cries. It's that kind of film.
