Video Film Review: BEFORE MIDNIGHT is fair in love and war and humor

BEFORE MIDNIGHT explores the real issues of love and life with wit and humor.

Today’s panelist, Justine Harrison, connects with our host, Danielle Winston, to discuss one of this summer’s best films thus far, Before Midnight. They get comfy and share a couch at the West Village gastropub favorite, West 3rd Common.

In our video review above, Danielle and Justine each bring an interesting perspective to this conversation about this perfect-for-summer and beyond film that you won’t want to miss.

Before Midnight is the third film of a cult-like romantic trilogy.  In case you missed the previous two, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, they are must-see viewing to truly appreciate this latest installment. All three have all been directed by Richard Linklater. Although he is credited with writing the first two, the writing this time, however, is also credited to the romantic leads Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, who each deliver outstanding performances here. Shot in Southern Greece in the coastal towns of Messinia and Kardamili, the scenery is gorgeous, breathtaking and ever so inviting.

Also included in this episode is our Video-On-Demand (VOD) Pick of the Week.  See why our correspondent, Mimi Spillane believes, “We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks” is essential viewing for us all in this current political and social climate.
