When Before Sunrise opened in 1995, it would have been difficult to predict that Richard Linklater’s sweet – but little seen – romance would deliver not one but two sequels. But after Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) promised to reconnect after their chance encounter on a European train, passionate fans demanded to know what became of their romance. With Before Sunset, the two reconnected in Paris and discovered that their chemistry was as strong as ever. And in Before Midnight, which screens tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival and opens in theaters on May 24, we find the couple on vacation in Greece, with their children.
Click below for an exclusive poster for the film, featuring the couple looking out across the Mediterranean. Are they watching the sun set? Is midnight approaching on their storybook romance?
Before Midnight plays April 22 at the Tribeca Film Festival and opens in theaters on May 24.
