Friday Night at the Movies

Our April offering at Friday Night at the Movies is Me Before You, a 2016 film with elements of drama, comedy, and romance intertwined in a compelling story of friendship, devotion, love, and heartbreak. Set in the United Kingdom, the story revolves around aristocratic quadriplegic Will Traynor and Louisa Clark, the young woman hired by his parents to be his caregiver. Angry and bitter after the accident that destroys his career as a successful and wealthy banker, Will initially reacts coldly to Louisa’s cheerful manner and treats her with contempt. However, they eventually begin to bond, and we witness a relationship that evolves into a genuine friendship – and maybe more.  Based on the novel of the same name by JoJo Moyes, who also wrote the screenplay, Me Before You will be presented by Andrew and Cindy Johnson.

Refreshments will be served; $2 donation is suggested. Sign-up in the church office at 630.968.7120 or email Sheila at
