Me Before You is not a romance.

It’s an insult to disabled people.

“Our lives are not tragic or pitiful. This film is,”

say disabled people the world over

#LiveBoldly? We already do!


Me Before You is the latest Hollywood film to grossly misrepresent the lived experience of the majority of disabled people. In the film, a young man becomes disabled, falls in love with his ‘carer,’ and they have an incredible 6 months together. Despite her opposition, however, the hero does the “honorable” thing by killing himself – leaving his money to her so she can “live boldly” after he is no longer a “burden” for her. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, Me Before You is little more than a disability snuff movie, giving audiences the dangerous message that if you are a disabled person, you are better off dead.

Meet us at the UA Riverview Cinema this Monday (June 6) at 3pm ! Let’s show them just how bold we really are!
