    The opening scene sets up such a good ticking clock. Jessie has a plane to catch. 
    You know he can’t catch that plane.
    Something has to happen in the interim that changes that. 

    When they talk you realise how they’ve influenced each other in those 9 years apart. The first time they met, Jessie was cynical, now he’s more of a romantic. Céline was hopeful, now she’s a pessimist. 

    Their lives have made them more alike than the last time…

    Watched in one of my favourite cinemas (showroom in sheffield) and had some points on a membership card so got some free rum and raisin ice cream thinking it would be appropriate to watch this with something alcohol related and had this profound moment of realising that not only is rum and raisin ice cream shit, but it has the same illusion which alcohol provides, in that alcohol can be good (like the ice cream part) but is sadly ruined by nature of, as another round puts it, “negative social effects and risk of alcoholism” (like the rum and raisin bit)
