The movie, Before Midnight, is about two people’s love and life, which is fiction but it is drawing like a documentary. Amazingly, the story is constructed by dialogues with 95% of the movie being shot in only five scenes for about 100 minutes. It may be hard to say the film is entertaining, but the message from the movie is deep. The story moves forward slowly and carefully but also its emotionally honest along with deft conversations of a couple who has been together for around two decades. For me, as a single woman, it was a little difficult to engage their life, but if you have a partner or a kid, their conversation may sound familiar to you, or overlap with you, and makes it easier to relate.
