Trailer Thoughts: Me Before You

Me Before YouWarner Bros. released the first trailer for their adaptation of Jojo Moyes’s Me Before You yesterday. Watch, and then let’s discuss:

First: This is obviously a GREAT cast and looks well-made and touching. And I have not yet read the book – please chime in if you have. But there appear to be a few themes here with which I’m uncomfortable, mainly caregiver/patient romance and the whole idea of holding someone – or yourself – responsible for someone else’s life/health. (Not in the caregiver sense, but the “stay alive for me” sense.) Maybe this is overblown in the trailer; I’ll probably give the movie a try regardless. But I found the trailer troubling. Anyone who’s read the book have thoughts? (I’m on the waiting list at the library.)
