Me Before You is a movie based on the best swelling book by Jojo Moyes.  The opening scene starts out with what everyone should avoid- talking on a cell phone and the dangers that happen when you don't pay attention to your surroundings.   In the beginning, the story seems to be about a disabled man in need of being shown what life is...
