BEFORE MIDNIGHT is the third installment, following BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET, in Richard Linklater’s dramatic saga about fate and love told through the story of two lovers: Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke). 

This time around we meet up with the couple in Greece. They are happy together, but all the romantic idealism they shared in their youth is almost all but gone. Now they’re left facing the everyday universal problems and issues of modern day relationships. Linklater, Hawke and Delpy have grown with these characters over the last 18 years and that’s the key to what makes their story and arc beautifully real and organic.

What the three writers have done is quite astounding by making a film that, if you’re a fan of the first two, is a fully rewarding chapter of Jesse and Celine’s story while also being a great movie on its own. 

BEFORE MIDNIGHT doesn’t shy away from the hard realities of modern relationships. Instead it lingers in those emotional truths most films don’t even want to acknowledge. It counters this while simultaneously being full of humor and joy as well. The combination makes it an emotionally complex and fully satisfying work of art.

"The only disappointing part of the film is that it has to end." -- Ryland Aldrich, Twitch

"With BEFORE MIDNIGHT, Richard Linklater has completed one of the finest movie trilogies of all time." --Eric Kohn, Indiewire
