Nine years after the cliffhanger ending of Before Sunset, we learn that Jesse (Ethan Hawke) missed his flight to stay with Celine (Julie Delpy), and consequently sank his marriage. The new film, Before Midnight, carries the whiff of prosaic disillusionment. This time, we're on the coast of southern Greece, at the end of a summer holiday. The pressures of work and Jesse's estrangement from his son are the precipitating crises of Before Midnight, which is concerned about middle age and the constraints that adults face once they are responsible for the shelter and sustenance of others. Jesse and Celine are grown up and wised up, but success isn't quite what they thought it would be. When do we ever see this movie, this film that tells the truth about the not-so-happily-ever-after?
