BOOK
 Me Before You
Written by Jojo Moyes/ Published by Michael Joseph (2012)
The novel Me Before You, the original worlk of the movie which won tremendous popularity recently, not only described the love, but also brought out the topic of euthanasia. Although it is not treated deeply as other books normally did, Me Before You expressed miserable condition and respect for one's choice well from family's perspective and the main characters. Furthermore, it provided an opportunity to consider about human nature and euthanasia.
The heroine of the story, Louisa worked at a small local cafe in the United Kingdom; however she loses her job as the cafe closes. Lacking special skills or education, she could not find a new place to work. One day, Louisa finds the advertisement and applied as a helper to care for the paralyzed patient Will for 6 months.

MOVIE
 Zootopia
2016/ Directed by Byron Howard, Rich Moore/ Stared by Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba and more
This film is about an unconventional rabbit 'Judy' who wants ot be a police officer in the animal world 'Zootopia'. She is brave and righteous, good enough to become a good police officer, but her dream is often ignored by other animals only because she is a rabbit, and rabbits are take as unfit for important jobs. However, she does her best and graduates the police academy with flying flags. Although her initial duty was issuing parking tickets, she works hard and meets a great partner 'Nick' the fox, who is always misunderstood like her. Zootopia starts to suffer from serial casesof mysterious disappearance and Judy is ordered to solve the problem in 48 hours. Judy and Nick work together and finally catch the criminal.
While watching this, I thought of two things:
First, I was impressed with the characters in this film. 'Judy' the main character is a female rabbit, and due to her eppearanc many other animals fail to respect her for who she is..
