Film Friday: Before Midnight
I've been looking forward to the third film in the Before.. series for a while now. In case you aren't familiar with the films, it all began with Before Sunrise. Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy meet in a train and decide to spend a day walking around Vienna and getting to know each other a little more. After 24 hours they have to part ways but promise to meet up a year later. The second film, Before Sunset was made ten years after the first, as the couple enter their 30s, and Before Midnight now sees them coping with life together in their 40s.
Without wanting to give too much away, things are of course much different to when they were younger, and now the couple struggle with family pressures. Delpy's character in Before Midnight reminded me a lot of her character in 2 Days in Paris and I felt she was a bit harder to warm to. Before Midnight is definitely worth seeing if you're a fan of the previous films, although I still love the first one the most.
