Hawke and Delpy (see p. 130), is how natural—and incisive—the dialogue sounds. “As you get older, you realize that there are fewer people you actually connect with,” Jesse says. He also confesses that the passion has gone out of his marriage, leaving him sometimes feeling as if he and his spouse simply run a daycare center together. Hawke, his face considerably more gaunt and lined than in Sunrise, is playful, soulful, and hints at being a bit of a bounder. It’s a high-wire act, but one he pulls off with style. Delpy, in a less complicated role, proves a charming foil. (R)
