Before We Go movie quotes follow two strangers who spend an unexpected night together in New York City. The romantic comedy-drama marks the directorial debut of Chris Evans, who also stars in the film. Using a screenplay by Ronald Bass, Before We Go opened in theaters on September 4, 2015.

In Before We Go, a distraught Brooke (Alice Eve) rushes through Grand Central Station in Manhattan in an attempt to make a train home to Boston. She misses the train, but does attract the eye of street trumpeter Nick (Chris Evans) who, later, asks if she is okay. Brooke explains that she was mugged of her purse, her cell phone is broken and she is trapped in the city with no money or way to get home.

Nick attempts to help Brooke, but she's not exactly open to this help, only sure that she needs to get home to her husband ASAP. But the two set out to find her purse and end up going on a number of adventures across the city. Not only do they grow closer to one another, something they did not expect, but also unexpectedly learn things about themselves in the process, allowing them to make the life-changing decisions both desperately needed.

Before We Go is just one of several movies in theaters for Labor Day 2015 along with The Perfect Guy, The Visit The Transporter: Refueled, A Walk in the Woods, and No Escape.
