Before Midnight

Before Midnight ★★★★

the last movie in my now beloved "before" trilogy was a very surprising one. stripped down to its core, exposing the naked truth of every relationship, it took me to a very emotional trip. a rollercoaster of the feelings, the movie sends the message "love is always about acceptance" that has been recycled so many times but linklater does it in such a familiar way: long conversations in the beautiful european city and heartfelt confessions. it was a different take as we finally got to see the ugly side of the relationships, and i think that's the most realistic thing about this trilogy. it was a very satisfying ending to a series, and i can't wait to revisit the story and these characters
