Join us for a special screening of Me Before You,
the heart-warming box office hit starring Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), based on the bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes. The sumptuous one-off screening will be accompanied by an in-conversation with Jojo who will discuss her experience bringing the book to screen.
Young and quirky Louisa "Lou" Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will's cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.
Jojo Moyes worked as a journalist for ten years and has been a full-time novelist since 2002, when her first book, Sheltering Rain was published. Since then she has written a further eleven novels, all of which have been widely critically acclaimed. She has won the Romantic Novelist’s Award twice, and Me Before You was nominated for Book of the Year at the UK Galaxy Book Awards. Me Before You has since gone on to sell over 12 million copies worldwide. Jojo wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of Me Before You starring Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones). It was released in June 2016 and was a huge box-office success, grossing over $200M worldwide
