Dir. Richard Linklater. 2013, 109 mins. With Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, Ariane Labed, Athina Rachel Tsangari, Panos Koronis, Walter Lassally. By the third—and at the time of this writing, final—outing in the saga of Jesse and Céline, romantic idealism has been replaced by something a little more pragmatic, difficult, and, for some of us, even more moving. While enjoying a lazy summer vacation in the Southern Peloponnese of Greece, the couple, now married with children (and stepchildren), find themselves trying to rekindle the flame that brought them together in the first place while the realities of domestic life—and the secrets and spaces between the two of them—begin to loom large. Featuring (of course) gorgeous European scenery, against which a withering marital spat seems all the more jarring, Before Midnight is a bold, intensely emotional conclusion to their story. “In Sunrise, it was the moment that mattered. In Sunset, it was the renewal of that fleeting moment, feared lost. In Midnight, it is a reckoning with the past and future, the burden of reality on the dreams of youth. But all three are equally about hope.” —Michael Koresky, Reverse Shot
