Trailer for 'Before Midnight'

I saw this movie at Sundance. It’s one of the best of the year, unquestionably. And now you, poor soul who did not get to go to Sundance, have a chance to glimpse some of its greatness.

Starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, “Before Midnight” is the third installment in Richard Linklater’s series that, so far, has included “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset.” As with the previous film, the third entry is written by Academy Award nominees Linklater, Hawke and Delpy. In “Before Midnight,” we meet Celine and Jesse 9 years on. Almost 2 decades have passed since that first meeting on a train bound for Vienna, and we now find them in their early 40′s in Greece. Before the clock strikes midnight, we will again become part of their story.

That description belies how brilliantly written and acted this movie is. It’s a wonderful look at what it takes to maintain a relationship after the grand surge of romance has passed.

Before Midnight comes out May 24th. Watch the trailer right now:
