A very refreshing Indie Drama!
27 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Before We Go follows Brooke who misses the train from New York to Boston and a street musician decides to spend the night trying to help her make it back home before her husband does. Throughout the night they learn a lot about one another and eventually find a romance in this nighttime sojourn through New York City.

Chris Evans really took his directional debut by storm with this sharp witted Rom-Com with some really glamorous shots of New York and a very smart script. Chris Evans and Alice Eve were one dynamic pair in this, starting off as strangers, their connection really started to up the ante from every piece of detail they give about one another through this one night.

Evans and Eve both pursue a strong chemistry with one another even from the ups and downs they have. One thing I'm glad this movie wasn't was that it wasn't a sappy romance film with all the romantic tropes to it, it was a very genuine film that knew where it was headed and what it was going to do. The ending was very unexpected that I wasn't really intending on seeing but I really should of contemplated it happening from what this film proved to be, it really slapped a smile on my face.

Chris Evans and Alice Eve, woah, they really proved they really have colossal talent by the credible synergy they have with their characters, they're so believable and you could just tell they were having a blast with one another. Even though it does have some likeness of Before Sunrise, I really think this film was just a tip of the hat than morally just a rip off because it really knew what it was doing with itself.

Before We Go is one of the most remarkable Indie Romance films I've seen In a while. With two astounding performances by its two leads, this nocturnal walking and talking romance film with one bold script and screenplay written by Oscar winning screenwriter Ronald Bass is truly one of the best Indie films you'll see this year so far. BWG really gives a sturdy setting, a smart, smart script, astonishing performances and a genuine ending that fits so properly, I advise you to give these two strangers a chance!
