I felt like I was crossing the virtual picket lines when I went to see Me Before You. After seeing so many people with disabilities protesting the movie as an affront to our "community," I decided to see it for myself.
Yes, yes, I know, we have to get through a summer chocked full of juvenilia, digitized end-of-the-world mayhem, and gallons upon gallons of blood accompanying screams and gore galore. And then, of course, serious cinema heavyweight award contenders throughout the fall. Okay, yes, of course.
