Me Before You

Synopsis: 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 his motorcycle 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.

But it's 6:


Oh, I've gotta go.

I'll cook tonight.

Don't even think about it, it's pouring.

Freddie, yeah listen, I am on it!

The West coast will still be up.

I'll call Carmichael now, and we can close this.


What? don't worry.

Thanks Frank.

I don't think I can finish this.

Should we wrap it up for you,

You've just gotta get back out there,

Think what you want to do.

Well, you can't just mope around.

All the best entrepreneurs, they fight their way back

from rock bottom.

Just look at me

But I am not you Pat. I toast the tea cakes.

Can't you slow down? I'm wearing the wrong bra.

I'm just saying

Put on a smile and head back to the job center.

I'm running out of options for you, Louisa.

Sayeed, please! I'll take anything!

Oh, this is new in.

But you might need to do something about your wardrobe,

for this one.

Care and companionship for a disabled man.

What kind of care?

need someone to drive, feed and assist

six months fixed term contract.

It's actually excellent money.

This is the fifth time they tried to recruit.

They're desperate.

And there's nothing on here about needing skills.

it's perfect for you.


I know it's not how you like to dress.

is this like how anyone likes to dress?!

It served me very well.

in 1983.

styles change, love,

but smart remains smart.


- Thank You.

- You Must Be Louisa Clark.

I am Camilla Traynor, do come in.

Please, sit down.


Do you have any experience of care giving?

Um, I've never done it, but I'm sure I could learn.

And do you have experience with quadriplegia?

eh, no.

We are talking about complete loss

of the legs and very limited use of the arms and hands.

Would that bother you?

Not as much as it'd bother him. Obviously.


Sorry, No! I didn't No, uh!

No, I.

Are you alright?

Um, I'm just a little hot.

Do you, do you mind if I take off my jacket?

Your previous employer here says

you are a warm, chatty and life enhancing presence

with a lot of potential.

Yes, I paid him. Heh.

So what exactly do you want to do with your life?


Do you have aspirations for a career or a professional dream you wish to pursue?

- Um..well.

Miss Clark, why should I employ you?

instead of say, the previous candidate?
