'Before Midnight' on Blu Ray and DVD

one of 2013's best films is now on disc. i love this film. i suggest, as i have in the past, that you watch 'before sunrise' and 'before sunset' first. it's an amazing trilogy of love from first bloom thru 18 years of longing and having that love. i really really can't recommend this enough.

'Before Midnight'

julie delpy and ethan hawke discuss 'before midnight'

'Before Midnight' ****stars

'before sunrise' celine and jesse had a chance meeting with the promise to meet in six months in vienna when they got their lives in order.  nine years later 'before sunset' we learn that jesse showed up but celine did not due to a death in her family. but the connection was still there although jesse had married and had a son. would he stay with celine and leave his wife? we find the answer to that still another nine  years later 'before midnight'
within this trilogy we go from romantic interlude to the ups and downs of a marriage. each film shows the growth of these two characters and their aging as well. ms delby and mr hawke grow in each film not only in character but in their acting. they triumph in this well written and directed film. it's tougher than the first two installments but life does get tougher as we get older, look back at our choices and wonder what the future will bring.
although it stands on it's own i recommend that you rent the first two installments to fully appreciate the third.
i hope being released early that it does not get lost at year's end. as of this moment it is the best film of the year.

'Before Midnight'

'before midnight' there is a 'sunrise' and a 'sunset'.

'before midnight' opened yesterday in ny and los angeles. we're waiting for the wider release. it is the third film in a series that includes 'before sunrise' and 'before sunset'. each film takes place nine years apart. celine and jesse meet 'before sunrise', reconnect 'before sunset' and make bigger life decisions 'before midnight'. i love these two characters. i love the first two films. advance word tells me i will not be disappointed with this new chapter. it may stand alone but i'd rent the first two if i were you. start at the beginning and become part of their lives.
julie delpy and ethen hawke are wonderful as soulmates brought together by kismet. they not only star in these films but cowrote them with director richard linklater.

anne thompson's , of thompson on hollywood' interviews the trio.

these conservational films are a feast for your ears.
