Yesterday, as part of my belated birthday present, one of my dearest friends took me to see Before Midnight. We are both big fans of this trilogy and I personally have seen Before Sunrise and Before Sunset a few times each and love them both. The latest (and final?) installment skips nine years ahead from the last film. Jesse and Celine are on a vacation in Greece and just like the previous two films, this one takes place over the span of one day as a snapshot of the relationship between the two main characters.
I thought this was film was just as beautiful and honest as the previous two and just as full of sometimes witty, at times serious, and occasionally philosophical dialogue. I won’t lie, there was one scene in particular that made me cry because it was so beautifully written and filmed.
The film was preceded by three, equally interesting-looking trailers. I am going to keep my eye out for screenings of all of them.
Frances Ha co-written by and starring Greta Gerwig who is all sorts of awesome.
The Way, Way Back. Sam Rockwell is in this one, and although I know he has done all sorts of other stuff I can’t help but always think of him as Zaphod Beeblebrox from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
And finally, I’m So Excited. I am not sure about this one but looks like it could be lots of fun!
