Before Midnight (film)

Hailsham Film Club is resurrected to present a special screening of Before Midnight as part of Hailsham Arts Festival. The film is the third installment of the Julie Delpy / Ethan Hawke romances, the first two films being Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. I've linked to an Amazon boxed set at the end of this post in case you want to catch up or remind yourselves of the story so far!

Eighteen years ago, American boy Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and French girl Celine (Julie Delpy) enjoyed a romantic Viennese evening together in Richard Linklater's classic brief encounter romance, 'Before Sunrise'. Nine years later, we revisited them in 'Before Sunset' as they met up on the French leg of Jesse's book tour. Now we find their lives have become more complicated as they enter middle age. Jesse has left his wife to be with Celine. Married with twin girls, the couple are rekindling the sparks of their romance on holiday in Greece. But tensions and resentments are never far from the surface.
