Watch the First Trailer for Richard Linklater’s ‘Before Midnight’
Although I may have had the good fortune of already seeing the third installement of Richard Linklater’s transient love trilogy, Before Midnight, don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything for you. And now, neither will the first official trailer for the film.
After premiering at Sundance to an audience full of excitement, everyone has been abuzz as to the film’s theatrical release, which is now set for Memorial Day Weekend—and it cannot come quickly enough. But if you really don’t want to know anything about this round of Celine and Jesse, if you are really still puzzling over whether Jesse got on that plane, then I would suggest perhaps skipping the trailer entirely. I mean, we’ve all seen the photos, you know the two are physically together in the film, but perhaps that’s all you should know going into the film.
However, I will say that, as these films are wont to be, Before Midnight is a charming, intelligent, and heartfelt film filled with walking and talking and discussing life’s minute details and the larger questions of existence that plague us all.
The official synopsis reads:
Jesse and Celine first met on a Eurail train and experienced 14 hours of deep connection as they explored Vienna. Nine years later, Celine found Jesse at a Paris book store, the last stop on his book tour. They had one day together before he was meant to fly out that night. Now, we meet up with the two off-and-on lovers nine years later, in Greece.
