I don't know who you are and what you've been doing for the past two decades, but I've been living a personal life loosely structured around ideas about romance I acquired from Richard Linklater's 1995 film Before Sunrise, about a chance encounter between French student Celine (Julie Delpy) and American tourist Jesse (Ethan Hawke). Because it was basically the best movie ever made, the director reunited the actors for a sequel nine years later, Before Sunset. It was delightful.
Still more delightful: now it's getting its own sequel, Before Midnight, due out in theaters on May 24.
The trailer is below. I wish I could eat it, roll around in it, bring it with me as a plus-one to events. Could someone please send me a review copy?
