Many argue that homage is the highest form of flattery – especially when it comes to film. If that is indeed the case, then Richard Linklater should be experiencing some extreme ego-inflation right about now – for Captain America himself has clearly chosen to tip his shield to the legendary indie director’s Before Sunrise with his directorial debut, Before We Go.
With Evans also taking the lead role, and Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) as his co-star, this romantic tale comes from the writer of Rain Man – Ronald Bass – along with Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair (both screenwriters of the Chris Evans movie Playing It Cool), as well as Jen Smolka (The Good Cook).
You can check out the official plot synopsis below:
“Flustered and fearful after a brush with a mugger, Brooke (Alice Eve) races through Manhattan’s Grand Central Station, desperate to catch the night’s last Boston-bound train. »

There's something so distinctly beautiful about Richard Linklater's refined, stripped down and deeply mature Before trilogy. It's easy to see why people would want to mimic it. It's two characters, interacting amongst gorgeous backdrops like prime European destinations, discussing life, love and anything-and-everything in-between.

After reprising his role as Captain America in the summer blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans takes on a completely different role in the first trailer for Before We Go. The actor not only stars alongside Alice Eve, but he also makes his directorial debut with the film. The indie drama was acquired by RADiUS-twc following its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year.
The film follows the journey of two strangers (Chris Evans and Alice Eve) stuck in New York City for the night. Starting as convenient acquaintances, the two soon grow into each other's most trusted confidants when a night of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives. The film is set to hit theaters on September 4, but it will be available on VOD formats starting tomorrow, July 21.
