Last night we saw “Before Sunset” at the Parkway Theater. Before Sunset is the sequel to Before Sunrise (1995). It was really good. Although it wasn’t actually filmed in real-time, the movie does represent one hour and twenty minutes of time during a single day, the same amount of time as the movie’s length. It is essentially one conversation. I very much like how the conversation progresses during the movie, and I especially like the ending… which I won’t give away here. I don’t think it is crucial to see Before Sunrise prior to seeing Before Sunset, but it does help.
Before Sunset was directed by Richard Linklater, and stars Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy.
If you’re looking for action, don’t see Before Sunset. But if you’re looking for a good story, character development, and dialogue, then Before Sunset is a movie for you.
