Wow, I’ve recently beenwatching quite a number of movies from Welcome to the Punch to Despicable Me 2 and Arthur Newman! And today, I just attended another movie – this time with my favourite Crystal to watch..Before Midnight brought to you by Shaw and omy.sg(:
Short Synopsis of Before Midnight:

Before the clock strikes midnight, we will again become part of their story.

Sneak peek of the movie:
And the reason why it’s M18..(bottom photo).
So yes Julie Delpy was topless for the entire scene.
Basically Before Midnight is the 3rd installment in the Before series as seen below:
– Before Sunrise in 1995 where Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) first meet while in transit
– Before Sunset in 2004, the star crossed lovers cross paths once more in Paris
– Before Midnight in 2013, the pair finally get together and have two children but that’s when reality sinks in and things start to not work out…
What this movie isn’t – A typical chick flick. Instead, the movie is definitely more ideal for couples to watch together, as it is an echo of a typical modern relationship in all it’s seriousness. The acting and rapport between Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) is definitely there and I’m really impressed with their abilities to act out the scenes so naturally.
More importantly, I’m awed by the sheer number of lines they had to memorize for the movie – so you can expect loads of conversation between the two but no worries, it’s peppered with loads of humor which made the audience laugh out loud a couple of times. To me, there were definitely some scenes that I could really connect with as it reminded me of the relationship with the bf and I and I knew that if he was watching it, he would say – I totally feel Jesse (Ethan Hawke).
And why’s that? Hehe, watch the movie to find out more!
Before Midnight will be available at Shaw Theaters from 25 July 2o13.
Lastly, would like to end off by thanking Omy.sg and Shaw for this movie invite!(:
