  • Whatever a modern love story is, Before Midnight takes it to the next level. It's damn near perfect. show more

  • The latest in the wonderful "Before" series does three important things: It breaks out of the courtship formula, yet retains the series' quality, and it moves the lives of Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) forward in ways that are satisfying and believable. True, a romance you once envied might now be a relationship you'd not want to be in, but as long as Celine and Jesse are still talking, there's hope. show more

  • This is a movie that mines deep beneath the surface of human feeling. It will make you think - about love, about life, about two people who aren't real, except that they've become so for so many of us in this improbably successful indie franchise. show more

    My personal favorite of the series. It\'s a great movie, that gives an honest glimpse of ******** like to be in a relationship that lasts your entire life.

    I was absolutely blown away by this movie - I found it mesmerizing, honest and compelling. I especially liked the dinner with friends - very impressed with the honesty of the 2 main actors - a worthy successor to the two previous films which I also enjoyed!
