Currently playing in theaters in Los Angeles, New York, and Austin, and opening nationally on June 14th is Before Midnight from director Richard Linklater (Bernie). The film is the third in a franchise that also features Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, and was co-written by Linklater and the film's stars Ethan Hawke (Sinister) and July Delpy (Broken Flowers).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Ethan Hawke and July Delpy to talk about their work on Before Midnight. The accomplished actors discussed the new film, the appeal of the trilogy, what they like about their characters, how they have grown throughout the series, co-writing the screenplay with director Richard Linklater, if their own lives are an influence on the script, and how Linklater has changed as a filmmaker since making the first movie almost 20-years ago.
