Before Midnight review

Film description

Before Midnight is the sequel to Richard Linklater’s romance dramas Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy will reprise their roles as fleeting lovers Jesse and Celine and have also co-written the script.

Sunrise saw the pair meet, fall in love and part ways during one day and night in Vienna; Sunset caught up with them nine years later in Paris, where they stole just one more day; and Midnight will see the now middle-aged pair look back on old times in Greece.

Star Ethan Hawke taunted fans of the series when he suggested work on the film may be beginning in August 2012, only to announce it was well and truly in the can by September. Coming nine years after the last instalment and eighteen after the first, the timing couldn't be more perfect.

With the same winning chemistry and a whiff of middle-aged regret, this is sure to be a fittingly bitter-sweet threequel.

Before Midnight will open in 2013
