(Richard Linklater, US 2013, 109 min., 35mm)

Now married with their own children, Jesse and Céline are on vacation in Greece, seemingly far from their problems. When Jesse takes his teenage son to the airport for a return flight to the United States, doubts surface about the decisions he has made in his life, leading him to this long-distance relationship with his son. Broaching the subject with Céline brings up her own struggles as she considers a move to a government position—a move that would go against her earlier beliefs. Wrapping up this story of a complicated, messy, modern, and very realistic romance, Hawke and Delpy shine in this final tale of the trilogy.
