Before Sunrise

I have a really good friend who's always recommending movies for me to watch. In fact, I have a long list that I'm slowly working through. I'm so looking forward to being able to watch them more consistently. I watched one on The List that I had only a little bit of an expectation for, but I fell in love with. 

Before Sunrise (1995)-- Yes, I understand it's from 1995 and it feels like it's one of those movies that everyone loves and adores and it also happens to be from the 80s or 90s, which makes it that much more endearing, but I had never heard of it. Then again, maybe it is wildly popular and I've just been living under a cultural rock. 

This was the sweetest movie I've ever seen. I love rom-coms (can't help it, I'm one of those girls), but this wasn't a typical romantic comedy that follows the typical pathway that one in its genre does. It's about an American man and a French woman that meet on a train and have very limited time together. Easy setup, yes, but absolutely heartwarming and perfect and uplifting. It even got a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes! (So yeah, maybe I do live under a rock.)

And let me reiterate: IT'S NOT CHEESY. I think this is why I like it so much.

Before Sunrise is my new favorite movie. I don't add movies to my 'favorites' list frequently, but this one is on it. So stick with me while I share some things.

Please, just go watch this movie. It's at the public library or just check it out however you watch it. 

(Also, upon reading about it, I found out that there are sequels. This is beyond exciting.)
