Before Midnight is the third instalment in the story of Celine and Jesse, a couple who met on a train in Europe and fell in love.
Co-written by its stars Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater, Before Midnight, like the two films that came prior is a beautifully written account of a relationship over time. It’s romantic, funny and does a good job of capturing a very real experience of life and love in modern times.
One of my favourite moments is the dialogue during lunch outside in Greece. So smart, wise and just the kind of exchange I love to be part of and/ or witness to.
Watch it because it’s very well done and directed by Richard Linklater, the man who brought us 2014’s Oscar Winning (Best Suporting Actress), Boyhood – another film that embodies a very notable level of realism.
Towards the end, I couldn’t help but conclude that Celine really is quite nuts. But the best thing is that Jesse knows, loves and chooses her all the same and she does the same for him, since he too isn’t exactly a walk in the park either.
Happy film Loving 🙂
