Before Midnight

Did you watch Before Sunrise in 1995 and Before Sunset in 2004? If you did then you’ll have to watch Before Midnight as you’ll want to see how Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) have come along since their chance meeting on a train in Europe in 1995. Each film takes place within a particular day and they are generally about love and life experiences. Once you’ve started watching them you can’t help but want to see the next one, and then the next - although I wasn't expecting a 3rd. Celine always over thinks everything and comes across a little crazy, and Jesse must have the patience of I don’t know what to put up with her craziness. This is a charming trilogy but would appeal to a very specific audience who enjoy listening to non-stop, amusing and creative, conversation. You do really need to see the other 2 movies first though for this one to make sense.
