4.0 out of 5 stars The Conversation, 28 Dec 2013
This review is from: Before Midnight [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I viewed the first film in this trilogy, missed the second and onto the third. It could very well be a stand alone film, it will resonate with many of us, married or not.

Pathan Hawkes, plays Jesse, a world renowned writer, married to Celine, played by Julie Delpy. Both in their forties now. They met as young people on a train, together for a short while, then split and found each other again. Now with two young beautiful girls. His dreams realized, hers , not so much. Celine wants a career, her dream job. Jesse has just left his son off at the airport to make his sojourn home from Greece to Chicago. He feels much grief for not being there for his son. Left with a crazy, alcoholic mother who hates Jesse and his new wife. Much regret, and hex works it out during this film.

Celine, on the other Gand, has regrets and pent up desires. She has left her desires to make her life with her family. During thus film, both Jesse and Celine, discuss in a constant compnversation their life, their wants, their desires, what is wrong and finally what us right.

This is a gentle film with a lot of foundation. We learn a great deal from this couple, about themselves, and about ourselves. It will resonate, as I said, with everyone. Where are you in your life, what is missing, what us right, what more needs to be done. Can we meet and face these issues up front? A film for everyone.
