Anna Rose Holmer’s The Fits focuses on an inner-city tween (Royalty Hightower) whose community center workout shifts from the boxing to the girls’ dance class. Honeyglue and Me Before You are both unusual and emotionally stirring love stories between odd couples. Thea Sherrock’s Me Before You, adapted from Jojo Moyes’ eponymous novel, is a sweetly uplifting romance in which a bond forms between a receently paralyzed young man (Sam Clafin) and the earnest young woman (Emilia Clarke) who’s hired to take care of him. In Honeyglue, written and directed by James Bird, a young woman (Adriana Mather) with terminal cancer and a free wheeling guy (Zach Villa) who cross dresses fall in love and decide to live their lives together to the fullest until they can’t. Highly recommended. Read my reviews….
