Then Came A Small Sweet (Movie Thoughts: Then Came You)

ltrPeter Hutching’s Then Came You’ was a nice surprise for me. I wasn’t expecting much, and I was only on board for Asa Butterfield who I think is a cute and charming actor (he is getting buzz for his Netflix series ‘Sex Education’) but I found the movie engaging even though I shouldn’t – the story is predictable, and no twists or turn was unexpected. But it has some great acting – not only from Butterfield, who delivered, but also from Maisie Williams, who plays Skye, a young woman who has been diagnosed with cancer. She enlists Calvin to help her finish her to-do list, and well, yadda yadda we kind of know that they both learn from each other and end up being better people because of knowing each other. Williams has a more formidable task, as her character isn’t written as the most sympathetic, but she more than overcomes that and you end  up loving Skye more than you probably should. All in all, I think this is the tcyperfect ‘rainy day’ movie (it was when I saw it)  If you don’t expect too much from it, you will get properly rewarded. And Asa Butterfield – I bet he becomes a big star very shortly. I will be watching.
