Me Before You doesn't promote euthanasia

Published 02/06/2016

I've just returned from a preview of the film Me Before You. I thought it was a formulaic tearjerker, weak on characterisation.

However, it is a distortion to suggest, as Michaela Hollywood claims (Life, May 30), that it promotes euthanasia, just as films containing murder, or rape, scenes don't encourage others to give it a try.

It's merely a rather trite film about one man's inability to cope with disability.
