Please excuse me while I geek out on you for a minute...
After seeing Before Sunrise, I was left feeling so spurned. I needed closure! I needed answers! I needed a sequel! Happily, a whole decade later, Before Sunset came along and neatly tied all of those loose ends into a big, gorgeous, glowing bow. That was that, and with that *squeeeeeeeal* GREAT ending, I was totally satisfied. I never imagined that the Delpy/Hawke/Linklater trio would once again revisit the Celine and Jesse relationship - so THIS... this is such a cool, unexpected bonus of a film. They've finally released the trailer for Before Midnight, and I am SO excited. Can you tell? Are you?!
I've carried this ongoing love story with me since I was a teenager, and its appeal hasn't diminished a bit. My mom had "As The World Turns", I have Celine + Jesse... I even dragged Jeff into the ridiculously crowded Shakespeare & Co. in Paris (Footnote: Literary history aside- it was also a prominently featured shooting location in the second film) to buy the 2 in 1 screenplay of the first two films. AND onto a super fun, but cheesy boat ride along the Seine (yes, another scene from the sequel). But you know what... I'm not even ashamed to admit it, these movies are a total obsession for me and I feel like singing and doing dramatic pirouettes all over the house in anticipation of seeing this one.
