Before Midlife

Before Midnight

Is it just me or does the Julie Delpy character seem a bit bitchy and unreasonable while the Ethan Hawke character seems levelheaded and reasonable? I don't feel the character of Celine is that well written this time around. The script is touted as being collaborative but it seems to be written by a man or more so from the perspective of Jesse.

I mean, maybe she is not meant to be appealing, which is fine but it makes the movie much more sympathetic to the male character and therefore a less satisfying experience than the other two films.
