Facing past, present and future in the test of time on one relationship

As part of Staycation Festival in the Howard Assembly Room and Kino, don’t miss this marathon of movie magic, as we screen all three films in the Before trilogy in one day. Book an antipasti picnic basket, handmade by the team at Kino, to enjoy at your table during the film and settle in…

Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy was filmed over 18 years, and follows the same couple, Céline and Jesse (played by Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke) as they meet, fall in and out of love, and travel through some of Europe’s most glamorous locations.

Nine years after the events of Before Sunset, in Before Midnight, we encounter Céline and Jesse as a couple, with twin girls. On holiday in the south of Greece they assess their lives, their fulfilled and unfulfilled ambitions, and their hopes for the future, in the conclusion of the trilogy.

“essentially a film about people talking. But when the talk’s this good, this absorbing and revealing and witty and true, who’s going to complain?”
– Philip Kemp, Total Film
