Power Rangers

Trashy, goofy, and surprisingly sincere, this superhero fantasy is better than you expect but not as good as it should be.

Before Midnight Interviews

"Before Midnight" is the third installment of director Richard Linklater's romantic trilogy that first ignited in 1995 when Jesse Wallace (Ethan Hawke), a young American author, and Celine (Julie Delpy), a young French woman, meet on a train to Vienna. Their love story continued in 2004 with "Before Sunset" when their paths once again intersect in Paris. Nine years later, Celine and Jesse are together seemingly happy as they holiday in Greece with their twin daughters, but fissures are building as they debate their future, and the consequences of their decisions.

As with the two previous films, Linklater's engaging naturalistic style easily immerses you into their world of long conversations that ping pong between intimacy and regret.

In this video interview, film journalist Katherine Tulich speaks to stars Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater on how life has changed not only for the maturing protagonists, and also how the films reflect and impact their own lives.
