Before Midnight

Before Midnight. I’d call it a must-see if you’ve seen and liked the previous two movies. It’s been a real treat to see these fictional people grow and change. There’s a couple moments in there (a dinner table monologue, a sunset countdown) that are so perfectly heartstring-tugging and bittersweet. I also liked the expanded cast with some couples older and younger to add some ground or contrast, and the timely nods to new technology and ways we connect. Somewhat in the same vein, I have to recommend Certified Copy, a brilliant walk-and-talk Mediterranean maybe-romance.
