Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★½

The "Before" trilogy is something completely unique and special that is beloved by all those who've had the chance to watch it. I find myself going back to these films all the time with the same joy as I did the first time.

Or even more joy? The closing of Before Midnight is so perfect and tragic that it makes the previous two films even more profound. The more I think about it, the more Before Sunset might be my favorite film of all time. 

Love is a rare and precious thing, but it is fragile and fickle. There is no lack of great quotes in these films but there is one I wish to share: 

"I guess when you’re young, you just believe there’ll be many people with whom you’ll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.” 

Cherish this shit.

If you have never seen this trilogy and you are reading this as my friend, please advise me so I can lend it to you or something.
