THE third entry in the highly acclaimed series, Before Midnight follows on from Before Sunrise and Before Sunset to tell a tale of love in the face of life's trials and tribulations.

Amid a tide of popcorn blockbusters, Before Midnight promises a grounded, emotive story driven by its characters, not special effects.

Set nine years after Before Sunset, the film follows Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy), a couple living in Paris, parents to twin girls.

Jesse is struggling to maintain his relationship with his teenage son Hank, who lives in Chicago with Jesse’s now ex-wife.

Written, directed and produced by Richard Linklater, the same man behind the first two films, Before Midnight is sure to deliver the same calibre of emotional storytelling.

Having received universal praise from critics, with an average rating of 9/10 from 71 reviews, Before Midnight is sure to be one of the film events of the year for fans of narrative-driven, intelligent cinema.

Before Midnight (15) is out tomorrow (Fri).
