Continue the ‘Before’ series
At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, the Canton Palace Theatre will show Before Midnight, the third in a much-admired series of “before” films starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke.
Hawke and Delpy, who are credited as co-writers of the latest film, began playing two people whose lives cross in 1995’s Before Sunrise, then reunited for 2004’s Before Sunset — which was not only made nine years after the previous film, but also set nine years later in the characters’ lives. They are together once again in Before Midnight, also picking up nine years later.
And this may not be the end of the movie trail. According to Movieline,com Before director Richard Linklater has hinted at a fourth film — but “he and his cast didn’t have to think about it for at least another five years or so.”
