Celine and Jesse Discuss the Future in 'Before Midnight'

New clip shows romantic couple's evolution

By |

Director Richard Linklater is set to close his beloved Before Sunrise trilogy with the release of Before Midnight, one of the films our very own Peter Travers is looking forward to most this summer.

Out May 24th, the film catches up with Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) nine years after the events of Before Sunset (released back in 2004), and almost two decades since their first meeting on a train bound for Vienna.

The couple is now in their early 40s, living in Greece. In this brand new clip from the film, you can watch Celine and Jesse stroll through town, chiding each other as they discuss what they would and wouldn't want to change about each other and what the next 20 years may hold.

"Sometimes, I don't know, I feel like you're breathing helium and I'm breathing oxygen," Celine says in the charming exchange. 

"What do you mean by that?" Jesse responds, not missing a beat with a high-pitched voice and beaming smile.
