Highly anticipated ending to my favorite romantic trilogy far exceeded my expectations. It's both a beautiful and devastating story that shows how three-dimensional love can really be.

A beautiful film with tremendous dialog, Before Midnight says pretty much everything about life and love with just a few sequences.

Despite some very long takes, every line feels like the result of past experience. Hawke and Delpy's words, from describing the minutiae of their surroundings to their personal anecdotes are essential to the tapestry of the film. I could have listened to their conversations for much, much longer.
