Jamie Scott-Dyson's rating of the film Before Midnight

The romance is gone but the small flashes of affection and burst's of rage feel more real and affecting. They are no longer two drifters who philosophise, they are real people who discuss each other and the life they have built together. To me Jesse's firm 'last chance' to Celine when he pleas "I'm trying to make you laugh" was the peak of this perfect addition to a perfect trilogy. 5/5
