One of my favourite movies ever is 'Before Sunrise' by Richard Linklater.
I remember being taken to see it whilst spending the summer in Brooklyn, right around the time the sequel was coming out, so I would have been about sixteen.
It's simple and heartbreaking and great.
Ten years after the original was made, the sequel 'Before Sunset' came out. I urge you to go see both of these movies right away! Maybe leave a week between watching the first one and the second one out of respect for all those people who had to wait ten years to find out what happened between Jesse and Celine!
Below is a poem that a street poet writes for the two main characters. He tells them to give him a word and their choice is 'milkshake'.
Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash
Oh baby with your pretty face
Drop a tear in my wineglass
Look at those big eyes
See what you mean to me
Sweet-cakes and milkshakes
I'm a delusion angel
I'm a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think
Don't want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from
We have no idea where we're going
Lodged in life
Like branches in a river
Caught in the current
I carry you
You'll carry me
That's how it could be
Don't you know me?
Don't you know me by now?
