Emilia Clarke will star as Louisa Clark, a young woman who begins working as a guardian to a brusque quadriplegic Will Traynor (Sam Claflin). At first her outgoing personality clashes with his temperament until slowly a deeper relationship sparks between them. But there's a lot going on under the surface for the both of them.
Author Jojo Moyes wrote the screenplay, so there's a fair chance the movie will be a close adaptation. While watching the trailer
What about you? Are there specific scenes you want?
Pat's Health ObsessionThis is more of a collection of scenes rather than just one particular. Pat's just not the most sensitive or caring boyfriend. Louisa is doubtful about their relationship, but stays loyal to it because she is a loyal person. Pat gets easily jealous of Louisa and Will's friendship in its earliest stages before the tiniest hint of romance even enters the equation. As a health trainer it's a given he should be passionate about bodybuilding and health. But he sorta develops an obsession for marathon training and leaves Louisa in the dust.
His physicality and strict regimes are the polar opposite to Will's limited mobility. All of the time Pat spends running and staying in shape is a sharp contrast to how much Will is unable to do.
"She certainly gives a good bed bath."The lingering tension between Pat and Will comes to a head when Will meets Louisa's family at her birthday party. Pat's cluelessness or ignorance of Will's condition prompts a rambling about him just needing a good fitness regime to get back on track. The birthday scene is in the trailers, but what's missing is Will's last comments to Pat when he's about to leave. To which he quips: "She certainly gives a good bed bath."
Will has a deep desire to get the last word. He knows what he says is going to get under Patrick's skin, and Louisa knows Will made the comment to do just that. But their relationship doesn't entail any physical contact like bed baths. This *drop the mic* comment may seem disrespectful towards her, but Louisa doesn't take it personally or disrespectfully. (Perhaps this is because Louisa is too used to people taking humorous pokes at her, but I digress...) It doesn't change that Will and Louisa's humor is similar. The way I have imagined the scene in my head can't help but feel like this line could be funny and could add a bit of spunk to the scene. We'll see...
The Horsetrack AttemptLouisa is on a mission to give Will experiences that make him reconsider all of the possibilities life has to offer. One of her first attempts is an outing at a horsetrack. Everything that could go wrong does - his wheelchair gets stuck in the mud, strangers stare at them because of his condition, the building is not wheelchair accessible, and so on.
Nobody wants to know that sometimes I feel so claustrophobic, being in this chair, I just want to scream like a madman at the thought of spending another day in it.
The ordeal shows how Will's once adventurous spirit is tainted by his quadriplegia. Like Pat's health obsession, it also creates a startling picture of not only how Will must live his life because of his condition but how some close-minded strangers might regard those with disabilities. It plays very well into Will's psyche and his motivations about his health and past.
The MazeDuring an outing with Will at a local castle, Louisa enters its garden maze to quell his teases of her cowardice. What he doesn't know is that long ago in the same maze a group of friends she was partying with took advantage of her intoxication and assaulted her. Going through the maze triggers memories and terrors of that night; enough to disorient her and Will must come to her aid.
This scene's important to have because it's a contrast from the "Tell me something good" line in the trailer. Louisa is very optimistic and seemingly happy-go-lucky. Will counts on her attitude to give him peace or contentment. But her omission of this experience (which she's kept a secret from everyone) gives insight about Louisa and why, to some degree, she chooses to lead a smallish life. She's built a comfort zone around her, and Will gradually lays a path for her escape.
