We saw Before Sunset this past weekend. There’s a decent review on the New York Times site. There’s nothing to it but realistic dialogue which builds brilliantly on the characters introduced in the 1995 film, Before Sunrise.
Perhaps what struck me most, was the actuality of the time that has passed between the two films. The actors have aged, the characters have matured, their lives have continued, and viewing their transformation gives me a vantage point to see the change in my own life. It’s kind of frightening.
