Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★

The Before trilogy is officially my favourite trilogy. Before Midnight, whilst being very different to its predecessors, is an honest and emotional film in much the same way. Time has passed, people have changed and cracks are beginning to show. Decisions made in the past stay with the characters and the film subverts expectations by having its central conflict be a serious and possible issue that feels tied to the themes of the trilogy.

Whilst probably being my least favourite of the 3, all 3 are brilliant films and have given me a fantastic and unique cinematic experience. Maybe they'll be another chapter in this story, but even if there isn't the story of these characters will last. I expect I'll rewatch the trilogy pretty regularly for the rest of my life.
