Before Sunrise (1995)

Director: Richard Linklater
Writers:  Richard Linklater, Kim Krizan
Cast:      Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy
A young man and woman meet on a train in Europe, and wind up spending one romantic evening together in Vienna. Unfortunately both know that this will probably be their only night together.

Its a great film and is based on a similar event that happened to the director Richard Linklater. The film was followed up 9 years later by 'Before Sunset' and another one is due out next year called 'Before Midnight'.

Rating: 4/5

The Rum Diary (2011)

Cast:      Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi
American journalist Paul Kemp takes on a freelance job in Puerto Rico for a local newspaper during the 1960s and struggles to find a balance between island culture and the expatriates who live there.

The film is based on the novel of same name by Hunter. Its directed by Bruce Robinson who came back after a long hiatus. Its a decent film and decent watch.

Rating: 3/5
