Before it hits theaters in Austin, La and NY this Friday (May 24), Sony Pictures Classics has released this new clip from Before Midnight. The film is scheduled to open in the St. Louis area on June 14th.
An American father, Jesse, (Ethan Hawke) is seeing off his son Hank (Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick) at the Kalamata Airport in Greece. Hank’s returning to his mother and life in the U.S. after spending the “best summer ever” with Jesse and his family. The middle-schooler is more composed than his fortyish father, who hovers anxiously as their separation draws near.
Geography weighs heavily on Jesse. Outside the airport, he rejoins his family: Celine (Julie Delpy) and their young twin daughters Ella and Nina (Jennifer and Charlotte Prior). As they drive through the austerely beautiful rocky hillsides of Messinia, Jesse and Celine talk – about living so far from Hank, about her career as an »

Yes, I'm posting a lot about Before Midnight and I have a review ready to publish tomorrow. In addition to that, I hope you've checked out my interactive maps for all three films in the romantic franchise, if not, here are the links -- Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight. For those of you that have already checked out the Before Midnight map you will probably remember my mentioning of the car ride that opens the film, well, Sony Pictures Classics has released a clip from that car ride and I've included it below. Now I realize I'm the first person in the world to run from advertising of any kind, but I believe you can honestly watch this clip without worrying about spoilers. But at the same time, I must say, I would never personally watch it without seeing the film first. I love these films too much »

Filmmaker Richard Linklater is no stranger to unique narratives. Dazed and Confused follows a number of characters on the last day of school in 1976, and Before Sunset plays out essentially in real time as Ethan Hawke’s Jesse and Julie Delpy’s Celine spend a couple of hours together in Paris. However, Linklater’s most ambitious film to date has actually been in production for the last decade. Growing Up (aka Boyhood) stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as a divorced couple raising their son, and Linklater and his actors have been shooting scenes for the film every year since 2002, as the story traces the boy’s life from first grade to 12th grade. Steve recently spoke with Linklater in anticipation of the release of Before Midnight, and the director provided a promising update on the status of Growing Up. Linklater said that he’s actually mulling over a 2014 release for the film, »

Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke have been together for 18 years -- well, on-screen that is. The stars of Richard Linklater's "Before" trilogy stepped out last night to celebrate the premiere of "Before Midnight," the conclusion to the drama- and romance-filled series, in L.A. Delpy looked radiant in a red, lace-embroidered dress, accessorized with matching red lips, while Hawke wore a classic navy suit and button-down shirt. As mentioned, "Before Midnight" is the final installment of writer-directer Linklater's story about Celine (Delpy) and Jesse (Hawke), two strangers who met, and fell in love, on a train to Vienna almost two decades ago in the film "Before Sunrise." The sequel to "Sunrise," "Before Sunset," caught back up with Jesse and Celine nine years later in Paris, after Jesse had written a book about their encounter. In "Before Midnight," we find the couple in their early 40s, in Greece, taking on »

From Vienna in Before Sunrise to Paris in Before Sunset, the story of Celine and Jesse is obviously the heart of why we love these films so much, but the locations speak to that sense of romance in us all. Meeting someone in a foreign country and enjoying a passionate, one night affair, believing you can't exist without them. Nine years pass without a word and you see them again, in Paris of all places. You walk, talk and fall for each other all over again, realizing this is something more than just puppy love. But these are the stories of the first two films in this franchise, Before Midnight is something of a different beast as we once again step into the lives of Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) as they are vacationing with their two girls in Southern Peloponnese, Greece. Today's map highlights the locations from »

Twenty-two years have past since Richard Linklater burst on the indie film scene with "Slacker," but the director is still happy to work outside of mainstream Hollywood. In fact, he prefers it stay that way.
"If you make a film with someone, maybe they don't like it or they're looking for reasons not to like it. They're like, 'Oh, it didn't turn out the way we thought,'" Linklater told HuffPost Entertainment. "That's kind of my history: You do a film with someone and they kind of glass-half-empty it. 'Here's what it's not. Forget what it is; we're going to focus on that.'"
Linklater had no such concerns on his latest film, "Before Midnight." Set nine years after "Before Sunset" -- which itself was set nine years after "Before Sunrise" -- "Before Midnight" reunites Linklater with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for another talky romance about love and life »

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, why the hell do you make such an enchanting on-screen couple?! Here it is almost two decades after Richard Linklater directed Before Sunrise, the first film to introduce our hopeless lovers Jesse and Celine, and almost a full decade after we re-visited Jesse and Celine for a romantic French encounter in Before Sunset, yet Linklater is still finding a market for his latest story about Jesse and Celine – Before Midnight. You don’t see many romantic dramas being franchised these days, but Linklater has found something astonishingly special with his Before franchise.
After all the passion and turmoil has settled from Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, Linklater’s newest film meets Jesse (Hawke) and Celine (Delpy) after spending some nine years together as a couple, raising their two beautiful daughters Ella (Jennifer Prior) and Nina (Charlotte Prior). We first catch up with only Jesse though »

Ask people about their favorite movies and the same titles come up regularly—Casablanca, Pulp Fiction, Annie Hall, Citizen Kane. But some movies have special meaning for people even if they don't turn up on lists of established favorites. These are the secret movies we keep in our pockets like lucky coins—there's something intimate about them, as if they belong to us alone.
For many people, particularly those who were in their twenties at the time of its release, Richard Linklater's 1995 Before Sunrise—in which Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke play young tourists who fold a lifetime of romance (and plenty of arguing) into one night in Vienna—is one of those movies. For others, 2004's Before Sunset, which reunites Ha »
Richard Linklater is one of the more versatile filmmakers working today. He very much marches to the beat of his own drummer, and his filmography is littered with varied and fascinating projects like Waking Life, School of Rock, Dazed and Confused, and last year’s terrific Bernie. Now, as Before Midnight—the wonderful and moving sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset—is poised to open in limited release this weekend, Linklater has revealed that the Criterion Collection version of his breakthrough 1991 film Slacker will be released on Blu-ray. Linklater broke the news while talking to Steve in anticipation of the release of Before Midnight, and the filmmaker also discussed his desire to do a Blu-ray box set of all three Before movies at some point with some new extras. Hit the jump to read on. While Slacker was previously released on DVD by the Criterion Collection, Linklater said he »

I deeply love both Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. The series goes beyond your average romance flick and explores the depth of a relationship over the span of years. The third installment Before Midnight takes what started out as a chance meeting on train to what happens to two people who seem to be fated to one another regardless of how fast the world is moving. To be honest, I was a little upset when I watched the trailer and learned the relationship status of Celine and Jesse. After »

Nine years after their first meeting we meet Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) once again, this time in Paris in Before Sunset, the follow-up to 1995's Before Sunrise. This time the script was co-written by director Richard Linklater and his two stars and it's truly one of the best films I've ever seen. When we last left Celine and Jesse it was at a train station in Vienna in June of 1995 and a promise to meet again six months later in that very location. Nine years have passed and the meeting never took place. Jesse is now married with a child and an accomplished author, with a book he's written entirely based on his night with Celine. His book tour has brought him to Paris and, seeing he was going to be in town, Celine decides to stop by, rekindling the flame that was first lit nine years »

Don't say we never did anything for your love life.A – Aging "I like getting older ... it feels more immediate, like I can appreciate things more." — Jesse B – Breakups “You know what’s the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you?

In 1995, Richard Linklater and Kim Krizan's screenplay for Before Sunrise came to life with Ethan Hawke playing Jesse, a young American in Europe who just happens across Celine (Julie Delpy) on a train bound for Vienna. A German couple arguing on the train gives the two enough reason to begin a conversation and now, 28 years later, it's time to take a look back at how the couple we first met in 1995, and would meet again in 2004's Before Sunset, got to where they are in life and on a family trip in Greece in 2013's Before Midnight. Below is an interactive Google Map that pinpoints all the locations from the film, accompanied by images from the film, information on some of the locations and a few clips here and there. This is the first in a trio of maps I will be featuring this week. Tomorrow we'll follow Celine »

While we wait for various summer movie series to begin, Austin still has lots of interesting alternative film choices this week. And of course the summer blockbusters have begun and you already have your choice of the new movie with the Star Trek gang or the movie that released last week (and therefore is practically ancient) with the man in the iron suit.
Tickets are still available through the Austin Film Society website for Sunday's triple-feature of Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and the sneak peek of Before Midnight, with director Richard Linklater in attendance after the first movie.
On Tuesday, Violet Crown Cinema presents Holiday Road, a comedy in which 13 filmmakers each devote a short film to a different American holiday. Ut alum Todd Berger tackled January and October, and Austin's own Kelly Williams was a producer for this anthology.

A new clip has been released for Richard Linklater's Before Midnight. The new film takes place 18 years after Before Sunrise and 9 years after Before Sunset, and sees Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) navigating married life on a trip to Greece. In the new clip, Celine and Jesse continue to examine their relationship, and you can see the easy-going shorthand between the two characters. However, if you're looking at this clip and the previous clip, and you're uneasy about two people just walking and talking, then this movie (and the previous two) may not be for you. For everyone else, Before Midnight that's absolutely worth your time (click here for my full review from Sundance). Just be sure to see the first two before coming to the latest installment. Hit the jump to check out the clip and to find out when the movie is playing near you. »

Check out this new clip from Richard Linklater's brilliant "Before Midnight" (May 24), in which long-term partners Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke), graced with a few moments alone away from their children, get to discuss their relationship dynamics while strolling through a small town in Greece. "Sometimes I feel like I'm breathing oxygen and you're breathing helium," Celine snarks at Jesse. Watch below."Before Midnight" is the third installment in Linklater's romance trilogy starring Delpy and Hawke as a pair of loquacious lovers who, over the course of 18 years, meet, part and then come together again to, for better or worse, form a family. The film rightfully received raves out of its Sundance premiere; despite (or due to) the nine-year gaps between films, the quality of the series and its attention to realistic demands in relationships remains top-notch. Linklater, Delpy and Hawke, who receive co-writing credit for the »

Movie trilogies today are normally reserved for Hollywood's big blockbusters, like superhero films ("Iron Man") or bombastic comedies ("The Hangover") that appeal to a wide audience. Director Richard Linklater's "Before" series is the exception to that rule. The films -- "Before Sunrise," "Before Sunset," and now, "Before Midnight" -- star Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as Jesse and Celine, two strangers who meet on a train to Vienna and fall in love. Each film is filled with loose dialogue and uninterrupted shots, making the conversations between Jesse and Celine feel very real, so much so that since the first movie was released in 1995, fans of the series approach both Delpy and Hawke believing that they are their characters (the fact that the two stars have writing credits on each film only adds to that belief). "Midnight," which hits theaters this weekend, will do little to dispel that notion, as »
