Chris Evans, Alice Eve, Emma Fitzpatrick
Directed by: Chris Evans

Actor Chris Evans' directorial debut is a relationship drama and a very different type of movie. The story flows and you really fall in love with the characters. It is so realistic that this could be happening to someone you know, or even yourself.

It’s nearing 1.30 am and trumpet player Nick Vaughan (Chris Evans) is standing in Grand Central Station in New York City playing a few choice tunes to whoever is listening. His main purpose to be there, besides gaining the sympathy of a few who drop a few dollar bills in his cap, is to try and sort out a personal relationship problem and also try and be a part of a premier Jazz musician's band. As he’s about to leave, Brooke Dalton (Alice Eve) an art consultant who's desperate to make the last train to Boston, comes running past him, dropping and breaking her phone in the process. Nick calls out to her in order to return the damaged device, but she rushes to the station below without noticing him.

But she realises it’s too late, as her train has left. Nick returns her phone and both leave the station and move onto the streets of a cold and wintry Christmassy New York. Nick offers to help Brooke to find an alternative way home; when he learns that someone stole her purse. But his money is too little for the long journey home.

As the night progresses, Nick and Brooke share an undeniable connection, pouring out their heart to each other, helping each other sort their personal issues and finding the courage to face their fears head on.

The chemistry between Nick and Brooke is fabulous. Don’t miss the part when the two duet on My Funny Valentine sung by Alice. Bonus material includes ‘A Conversation with Chris Evans’ which actually has more clips from the film rather than conversations.

‘Before We Go’ may not be very memorable, as the audience leaves without a magical ending.
