I just saw Before Midnight and I was impressed by how great their marriage is. I was happy that they were able so show a nice semblance of what it is like to be married instead of overly romanticizing it. Delpy's character reminded me of my self.
A bit neurotic. Worried about a lot of things while just taking in so many things and keeping them to myself.
The character of Hawke was amazing as well. He was great in trying to make his case. He was not perfect, a bit judgmental and I was in awe of the tolerance Delpy had.
I guess, at the end of the day, if I ever get married again, if I see something like this, I will be okay.
This is what a marriage is all about. It's about laughing, talking fighting, walking out, coming back, walking away, getting fetched, loving and living and growing old together.
In spite all that has happened to me, I am still hopeful.
At least I have that.
In the meantime, I have to take a bath and have a great time... before midnight.
'Cause after that I have to sleep and then get my ass to work.
Here's to hoping that in between sleeping and working I will get to find my Hawke. :)
