Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★½

The fact that these films were filmed so far apart make them that much better. In this chapter, Jesse and Celine are now parents in their early 40s, vacationing in Greece. This time the couple deal with the hardships of growing older and having opposing thoughts on how they should handle things going on in their personal lives. Their love is put to the test in this one. It may be my favorite of the three. First seeing them in their early 20s, then their early 30s, to this point has been a journey. This trilogy is a beautiful reflection of how love can stand the test of time, even with its ups and downs. And makes it a point to show that it isn’t always easy. I’m so glad I took the time to watch these. Definitely some of my favorites from Linklater’s filmography.
