Before Midnight Clip - Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy

I must confess that I was a little disappointed that Before Midnight didn't win the Oscar for Best Adapted Screen Play on Sunday, although I don't doubt that 12 Years a Slave was deserving of it. I haven't seen that film yet so I can't really compare. Anyway, I thought I'd share a clip of Before Midnight, and ask all of you that haven't seen it yet, "What are you waiting for?!" The Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight trilogy is definitely one that I'll be watching over and over again. Such a great concept, great acting, and great writing! It's the perfect mix of light-heartedness and deep thinking. I could go and on and on, but without further ado, here's the clip I promised! 

If you've seen this film, I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below! Also, please consider subscribing to my blog via email or following me on Twitter at @KMonterey. Thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. Kara,

    I was also very disappointed that Before Midnight did not win for Best Adapted Screenplay. 12 Years a Slave was an excellent movie and deserved the Best Movie of the Year; however, I believe it won on its collective talents. Before Midnight's writing was certainly more intriguing, in my opinion.

    I saw Before Sunrise on television long ago and was immediately enraptured with the characters and the dialogue. The ending in which rain spatters all the places the two went, with the two painfully absent, is incredibly moving. So of course another movie had to be made.

    Since watching that movie long ago, Ethan Hawke has become my favourite male actor.

    The second movie was just as stimulating.

    The third, too, is excellent. For the first time, we not only see the flirtatious, playful attraction of the two leads, we also see the starkness in the fact that they are very real. They get angry with each other and have disillusions like everyone else. I was reeling when I thought that their relationship was over. I am glad that the ending presented some hope, but not a lot.

    But I loved the movie especially for the fact that we know fantasies cannot last forever. And love goes a lot deeper than just being happy together.

    I agree with you whole-heartedly: these movies are classics.

    1. I'm glad to hear you loved these three movies as much as I do! I agree with everything you said. Thanks for visiting my blog.
