Before Sunset ★★★★★

Linklater turns his lovers’ dynamic on its head- this time Jesse is the optimist while Celine is the cynic- and the mundane is once again the sublime. These new folds in the interpersonal relationship deepen what came before without dismissing it as a flight of youthful naïveté. You feel every second of the 9 years that have passed, and yet, it’s like no time has passed at all.
