Fans of ‘Me Before You’ will love the new movie hitting Netflix in the next few days. The film A second chance to love, starring Emilia Clarke is set to make its streaming debut on May 17.
Of course, the comparisons between the two films are very superficial, and the presence of the actress in the two productions can be limited. While How I Was Before You focuses on drama, on A second chance to love, we see a romantic comedy. To top it off, it takes place in a period close to Christmas.
Released in 2019, the feature film is directed by Paul Feig. On the face of it, the movie is for those who aren’t asking for much and are just looking for another unassuming comedy. Of course, the performances of the main couple and the well-crafted plot make the film a good pastime.
