What is it about?
After a woman misses her train and is stranded in New York City, she meets a musician playing in Grand Central which sparks a night of randomness that forces them both to confront their fears.
Who is in it?
Chris Evans - Nick
Alice Eve - Brooke
After running away from a situation he waited six years for, Brooke and Nick hang out on a stoop before Brooke convinces Nick to face his fears and get closure.
Brooke: "Running is easy"
Nick Vaughan: God. Why is it that any one decision always seems too small to be the biggest decision of your life.
Brooke Dalton: I don't know but sometimes you have to just make the choice and jump.
So yeah, Before We Go definitely surprised me in how great of a film it is. As always, I am a sucker for coming of age/dealing with real life problems, independent films. Yes, that's my guilty pleasure, admittedly so.
All of that aside, Before We Go is a really great movie. Parts of the plot can feel a bit overreaching, however, the depth of the characters, the overarching message, and even the realness of struggling of carrying the past is genuine and welcoming.
What really made the film is the chemistry between Chris Evans and Alice Eve who really get you to root for both of their characters to overcome in the end.
And my favorite, the ending wasn't cheesy at all, but was done so well.
If you have some time, find this one and give it a watch. Especially, if you're into the indy scene like I am. You won't be disappointed.
