Richard Linklater’s cherished “Before“ series returns this year with the third and potentially final installment, Before Midnight. Reuniting stars/co-writers Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in their definitive roles as Jesse and Celine, respectively, we once again skip nine years from the events of 2004’s Before Sunset and find the now-committed couple vacationing in Greece with their twin daughters and encountering some of the real-life relationship problems that inevitably develop over time as the romance fades. After debuting to widespread acclaim at Sundance earlier this year, this film has quickly become one of the most anticipated of the year, and this trailer promises a very worthy and necessary follow-up to the wonderful films that preceded it.
Before Midnight opens May 24 in the US and July 4 in NZ. Check out the trailer and poster below.
