8. BEFORE SUNRISE
“I like to feel his eyes on me when I look away”
What if you only had one day to spend with a stranger you just met who you can’t stop thinking about? Carpe diem! American tourist Jesse (Ethan Hawke) meets French student Celine (Julie Delpy) on a train to Vienna. Sparks fly, so they decide to spend the day in the city before Jesse leaves the next morning. A kiss, intimate glances, shared laughs — and an intensity caused by the shortage of time. Can they tear themselves away? That’s the hook that draws us in and doesn’t let go (oh to be on such a trip ourselves).
